Sean Dyche – the manager of Premier League club Everton – has said that everyone should go see Green Day, no matter what kind of music they’re into.

While appearing as the most recent guest on the Football Music & Me podcast, hosted by Geoff Shreeves on The Overlap YouTube channel, Dyche opened up about some of the gigs he has attended in the past including The Hives at Glastonbury and watching Pink, Rihanna, Metallica and Foo Fighters throughout the years.

Dyche also recalled the time he went to see Billie Joe Armstrong and co. live with fellow football legend Stuart Pearce.

“It just feels like two hours of high-octane, non-stop, smashing the life out of song after song,” he told Shreeves. “You can’t not like it, I’m telling you! That’s my advice for you: anyone who’s not seen Green Day, I don’t care what music you’re into, just buy a ticket and see Green Day.”

He continued: “I saw them with Stuart Pearce – he was like, ‘You’ve got to see Green Day.’ He almost bullied me into seeing Green Day. And I went, ‘Right, okay.’ And he was right. They were just a different class.”

Green Day recently released their 14th studio album ‘Saviors’. In a four-star review of the LP, NME shared: “Not only does ‘Saviors’ spiritually bridge the gap between the two [1994’s ‘Dookie’ and 2004’s ‘American Idiot’] , but it uses the palette of the best of the band to tell us something else. Look to the artwork: ‘Dookie’ was a cheeky carpet-bombing of shit, ‘American Idiot’ was a hand grenade, ‘Saviors’ is an act of defiance met with a shrug; a band saying, “We’re still here and we’re still fucked”.

In other news, the pop-punk icons recently offered a taster for their upcoming ‘Saviors’ world tour by playing their seminal albums ‘Dookie’ and ‘American Idiot’ in full at an intimate club show in Los Angeles.
