Be a green Day VIP.

SEE Stateside supergroup Green Day perform behind closed doors in Birmingham!

That's the VIP offer from the Sunday Mercury Preview team today.

If you're our winner, you - and two pals of your choice - will get to see Green Day's soundcheck at Birmingham's LG Arena ahead of their show on Wednesday night, October 28.

Soundchecks are usually strictly private affairs with no fans allowed, but Billie Joe Armstrong and the guys have made an exception for us.

Although please note that the prize doesn't include tickets to the show in the evening. What you're getting here is a chance to get up, close and personal, with bragging rights next day! The gig is the first of two at the refurbished LG Arena and part of Green Day's first UK tour in four years.

Our winner and two guests will be allowed access to the soundcheck from 4pm.

Here's how YOU could be our winner!

Simply tell us the name of the Green day frontman. Is it (a) Billie Jean King, (b) Billie Joe Armstrong or (c) Billie Jo Spears? - BY PHONE: Call 0901 229 2393and follow the instructions.
