Green Day is reportedly rehearsing the entire tracklist of their third studio album Dookie in time for its 25th year anniversary.
Rumors that the punk rock band might be going on tour to mark more than two decades since the release of the seminal album began when drummer Tres Cool updated fans on what they have been up to recently.

If Green Day do this Dookie 25th anniversary tour........ I will be going to MULTIPLE dates. — Ciara ♡ (@ciaraxmb) July 27, 2018
Dookie was released on Feb. 1, 1994. Next year, it will be celebrating its 25th anniversary. While Green Day has not confirmed whether they will be heading on a Dookie tour, anniversary concerts are common. Last year, for example, U2 embarked on a Joshua Tree anniversary tour to celebrate the album's 30 years. Lauryn Hill this year also went on a The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill tour across North America. The punk rock band last performed the 1994 album in its entirety five years ago at the Reading and Leeds Music Festival.
Green Day Not Disbanding
The news comes a few months after rumors suggested that Green Day might be splitting up after Armstrong released a surprise album with his new band Longshot. In an Instagram video, the 46-year-old addressed the speculations with a resounding "f*** you." "Some of you are asking about Green Day and if there's anything wrong, or if we're breaking up," he started. "The answer is: no. I am having some fun with some of my friends."

Green Day released their most recent album, Greatest Hits: God's Favorite Band, last year.
