Just days after rehearsing their breakthrough 1994 album Dookie in its entirety and posting about it on social media, the men of Green Day returned to their practice room, this time to apparently play Dookie‘s 1995 follow-up, Insomniac, in full as well. This time it was bassist Mike Dirnt who posted a photo of the band and told fans to swipe if they wanted to see the set list, which was all of Insomniac.
Drummer Tre Cool did the same thing earlier in the week, letting fans know that the trio had rehearsed Dookie from start to finish.
Fans are now theorizing that instead of embarking on a 25th anniversary Dookie tour as initially speculated, Green Day may play both Dookie and Insomniac back to back each night or alternate between the two albums from show to show.
Insomniac was Green Day’s fourth studio LP and featured a heavier sound than Dookie. It included the singles “Geek Stink Breath,” “Brain Stew/Jaded” and “Stuck With Me.” While not as massive a seller as Dookie, it still moved over two million copies in the U.S.
