Green Day and Blink-182 are recreating their 2002 Pop Disaster Tour -- for one weekend, at least.
The two will co-headline this year's Not So Silent Night festival on December 9-10 in Oakland, Calif., Green Day's home turf. The two will be playing on separate nights, however, with Blink playing the first and Green Day closing the second.
The festival also includes Jimmy Eat World (the third act on the Pop Disaster tour), the Strumbellas, Bastille, the Head and the Heart, Empire of the Sun and Phantogram.
Green Day and Blink both released new albums this year -- Green Day's Revolution Radio came out in September, while Blink's California, its first with new guitarist Matt Skiba -- that debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
