Green Day Frontman Returns To Stage After Months Of Rehab
With months of rehab, tour cancellation and the infamous onstage meltdown well behind him, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has triumphantly returned to stage with the band's exclusive SXSW appearance at this year's festival edition in Austin, Texas. After opening their set with the "99 Revolutions" track, Armstrong addressed his return to live performing by saying that "this is not a f--ing party, this is not a first date, it's not a bar mitzvah it's a celebration!" With some of their biggest hits and occasional snippets of classic tracks such as AC/DC's "Highway To Hell" or "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Roses, the group kept the audience at the packed venue rocking throughout the entire set. The stage incident that took place seven months ago now seems long gone with the band obviously yearning to prove itself to the world once more. In a recent interview with the Rolling Stone magazine, the singer/guitarist admitted that at his lowest point, he "couldn't predict where he was going to end up at night". Green Day were also busy promoting their two new documentaries - "Broadway Idiot" and "Cuatro!", with the second one focusing on making of the group's latest album trilogy consisting of "Uno!", "Dos!" and "Tre!" In related news, Armstrong is reportedly working on a Shakespeare rock adaptation called "These Paper Bullets". According to the New York Times, the latest Yale Repertory Theater production will feature the story of a band from Liverpool struggling in the world of music business with a premiere officially set for March 2014.
