This year's South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, was already going to include plenty of Green Day, as two documentaries featuring the band are set to be screened on March 15 during the film portion of the festival. Now, it has been announced the band will be there as well to play a show that night, marking the band's first gig since frontman Billie Joe Armstrong entered rehab back in September.
Those checking out the film festival portion of Austin's South by Southwest will get plenty of Billie Joe Armstrong on the big screen. The Green Day frontman will appear in two separate movies, with 'Broadway Idiot' receiving its premiere during the event.
Green Day fans got their first taste of the band's '¡Quatro!' documentary late last year when VH1, MTV2 and Palladia aired a highlights special featuring clips from the film. Now fans will get to see '¡Quatro!' in its entirety when it screens at the upcoming X Games competition being held in Aspen Jan. 26.
We all come from somewhere in life and Green Day's Mike Dirnt is offering a tribute to Carol Alba Rowland, his birth mother, after her recent death. The musician spoke about the loss of Rowland and offered a few photos in an Instagram posting.
It was soon after Green Day began to launch into their '¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tré!' tour in September when frontman Billie Joe Armstrong suddenly entered rehab for unspecified substance abuse. After an uncertain three months, Green Day have announced their triumphant return with a string of 2013 North American tour dates.
Although the spot was cut from the final version of the film during the editing process, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong played a cameo role as himself in the latest Judd Apatow film, ‘This is 40.’ While the clip doesn't appear on the big screen, fans can now check out the lost footage online, seen below.
The latter portion of 2012 has found the members of Green Day mostly off the grid while singer Billie Joe Armstrong completes his rehab. But the band is taking the first steps in regaining their footing, beginning with a new music video and their first announced dates of 2013.
The final installment of Green Day's trilogy doesn't hit stores for another week, but fans can get a sneak preview now. '¡Tré!' is currently streaming by clicking below. The album will be released on Dec. 11.
Green Day have already given us '¡Uno!' and '¡Dos!,' with '¡Tre!' on the horizon, and now comes word that they'll follow the album trilogy with '¡Quatro!,' a new documentary. Fans will get an advance look at what's to come with a highlights special that will air in the coming weeks.
