Green Day Announce Post-Rehab Comeback Show
Green Day have announced their first show since frontman Billie Joe Armstrong went into rehab after an "onstage meltdown" last year. They will appear on March 15 as SXSW, to coincide with the premiere of "Broadway Idiot", a documentary which looks behind the curtain as Billie Joe Armstrong ventures onto Broadway with "American Idiot". SXSW visitors will also be treated to a screening of their "¡Cuatro!" documentary about the recent Green Day album trilogy, according to NME. Armstrong's very public breakdown led to the band cancelling all of their scheduled performances for 2012 and 2013, and a long stint in rehab. "Let me f--king tell you something," said Armstrong from the iHeartRadio stage in September, "I've been around since f--king nineteen-eighty-f--king-eight. You're going to give me one f--king minute? You've got to be f--king kidding me. What the f--k? I'm not f--king Justin Bieber, you motherf--kers." Their previously scheduled US tour dates will pick up again from March 28.
