I don't get why they're naming the tour after the one political song on the Trilogy.

 

Ironically, it probably would have made more sense to call it The Oh Love tour, or even The Sex Drugs & Violence tour  :ermm:

Well, if you're a fan who knows anything about the trilogy, it seems a dumb choice. The trilogy was meant to be a step away from the overblown pretentiousness of their "political" phase. Then they go and name the tour after the only political song off the 3 albums?

 

Sounds to me like Warner see Green Day as most easily being marketed as a "political" band.

I agree that it it doesn't make much sense, but it does sound cool. :P 99 Revolutions is an energetic live song as well so it fits in that respect.

And 99 Revolutions was also a song that got a big promotion on live shows, TV, Movies so I think it's  right choise and I think it's also the first tour that hasn't the name of the album they're promoting as name

99 Revolutions got 0 promotion. Nada. Not one bit. It hasn't even been released as a single. If you're not a Green Day fan, you probably don't even know it exists.

I concur. It's lame. Plus the whole 99% thing is seen as pretty old now so it's not even a particularly good way of marketing them as a "political" band. Not only does the name not reflect the albums well at all, it sounds out of date. Booo!

They should've called it the Nightlife Tour...

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

 

 

 

Or they should call it the Red Lights Flashing Tour since that seems to be a theme in the albums... or the X-Tour.

Since when does being in a shitty forgettable movie count as big promotion? If thats the case, Nice Guys Finish Last and JAR should be two of Green Day's biggest songs.



The X-tour sounds pretty cool

 

I know I'm blowing my own trumpet here, but The Sex Drugs & Violence tour would have been a fuckin' bitchin' name for a tour.

Well, whatever the tour is called, it better come to Seattle or I'm gonna be soooo pissed! :angry If you cancel your shows, Green Day, you need to reschedule them for another date when you're able to. Not completely scrap them! All those fans in those cities were so excited to see you again!
Honestly, I don't really care what they name their tour at all. That doesn't change the fact that they will be amazing to see live again.

99 revolutions tour is cool. Other song names would sound good with it E.G Carpe Diem tour, Let yourself GO Tour, The forgotten tour??  

But other names would sound shit xD e.g  The Amanda tour, The Little boy named train tour, Baby eyes tour :D

99 Revolutions was on ESPN and X-Games a lot and transitioned NFL games to commercial a lot. Other than that, and The Campaign, nothing else really.
