21st Century Breakdown World Tour was a concert tour by American punk band Green Day in support of the group's eighth studio album, 21st Century Breakdown, which was released in May 2009.

The tour began with an eight-week leg throughout North America, kicking off in Seattle, Washington in July 2009 and culminating in Los Angeles in late August.[1] A European leg followed, beginning in Lisbon in late September and wrapping up mid-November in Turin, Italy.[2]

In December 2009, the group toured Australia and New Zealand,[3] followed by Asian dates in January 2010. The group subsequently returned to Europe for a second leg of dates, beginning in late May 2010 with a headline appearance at the Pinkpop Festival in the Netherlands and two stadium shows in the United Kingdom.[4][5] The tour ended with an appearance at the Rock Werchter festival in Werchter, Belgium in early July. A scheduled performance at the Heineken Jammin' Festival in Venice, Italy on July 4, 2010 was cancelled due to poor weather.

During their performances of "Longview", frontman Billie Joe Armstrong sprayed the front rows with water cannons, shot t-shirts into the crowd and pulled people onstage to sing with the band.[6][7][8][9][10][11][12]

In March 2010, a second North American leg was announced, beginning in Camden, New Jersey in early August. A final leg of Central and South America followed in October.

A collection of recorded songs from throughout the tour and a bonus DVD of Green Day playing at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan are available on the live album Awesome as Fuck.
