For fans at the Las Vegas show, the announcement of the co-headline tour wasn’t the only highlight of the evening, as the band also used the intimate set to play their 1994 classic album ‘Dookie’ in full, and even debuted a new song.

As for the new track, the concert saw the band perform a song called ‘The American Dream Is Killing Me’ – taken from their upcoming album and is set to arrive next Tuesday (October 24). The song has been previewed on social media, and the new album will mark their first since 2020’s ‘Father Of All Motherfuckers’. Check out footage of the performance below.
