GREEN DAY continue to promote their chart-topping "Revolution Radio" release on WARNER BROS. RECORDS with a series of performances, including one on WEDNESDAY (10/19) at the RED BULL SOUND SPACE at CBS RADIO Alternative KROQ/LOS ANGELES.
The up-close-and-personal, 45-minute, 13-song set interspersed fan favorites like "Welcome To Paradise," "Holiday" (complete with new lyrics about the TRUMP Towers), "Longview" (as BILLIE JOE invited a fan from the audience to take over the vocals), "American Idiot" and "Basket Base" with songs from the new album like "Bang Bang," "Somewhere Now," "Youngblood" and the closing "Still Breathing," which had the audience singing along to every word.
KROQ PM-drive on-air personality STRYKER brought BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG, bassist MIKE DIRNT and drummer TRE COOL on after the performance for an impromptu Q&A that found the group in a giddy mood, describing the recording of the new album as close to their carefree "independent" days.
One thing's for sure: GREEN DAY gave their all, as they have on every stop on this promotional tour, proving they are as powerfully committed -- and artistically relevant -- as they've ever been, since being inducted into the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME last year.
