Love Green Day? Dig the Oakland A's? Here's the chance to enjoy the two East Bay institutions on the same evening.

On Aug. 31, the Athletics will host a postgame fireworks show set to the music of Green Day. The soundtrack will include tunes from throughout the band's multiplatinum career, which now stretches more than 20 years.

The Green and Gold are set to take on the Tampa Bay Rays that night. The fireworks show is included with the purchase of a game ticket. The team is, however, selling special ducats that include vouchers for a commemorative co-branded A's and Green Day hat.

For more information on the fireworks show, Green Day/A's hat giveaway and purchasing tickets, visit www.oaklandathletics.com.
