Billie Joe Armstrong Wants To Play In Your Backyard


We all got a little taste of what Green Day was cooking up in 2019 with the release of the first few singles from their upcoming album "Father of All..." The band is gearing up to release the full-length album next month and for the launch party have it in your backyard. Yes, you read that right.

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong posted on Instagram earlier this week that he's looking for a fan with "a relatively big backyard that we could do a backyard party in," or "somewhere where we could play at your house or your garage, or backyard - or I dunno, do you have a barn or a church or a church parking lot?" In a video posted on Instagram, the punk rock frontman put out the word that he's searching for a total DIY location with the only stipulation being that it's in the state of California.

“Hey, looks like our new record’s coming out in a month or something, so we’re just planning some stuff, some surprises,” Armstrong said in a video posted to Instagram on January 7. “But one thing I was thinking is … does anybody have, like, a relatively big backyard that we can do, like, a backyard party somewhere? Maybe come play at your house, your garage, your backyard? Or do you have a barn? Or is there a church or a church parking lot? Or, you know … I was conceived in a church parking lot!”“Anyway, just hijinks, fun, mischief. Backyard party with your favorite band, Green Day!” he continues, “Oh yeah, it’d have to be in California.”
