Joan Jett joins Green Day ... for surprise live performance

Green Day main man Billie Joe Armstrong joined musical forces with Joan Jett in a surprise duet at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The Festival was hosting the world premiere of the ‘Geezer’ movie, which stars Armstrong and tells the tale of a middle-aged rocker having a nostalgic crisis about his punk youth while already settled into to family life.

During the premiere Green Day – without Mike Dirnt on bass – plugged in for a surprise live set in which they welcomed Joan Jett to the stage to join them in a cover of ‘Bad Reputation.’

Green Day are also reported to be working in the studio on a new album which is due before the end of the year.

 

Setlist:

1. Devil's Kind (from Geezer)

2. Scattered

3. American Idiot with Joan Jett

4. Bad Reputation with Joan Jett

5. Ordinary World (from Geezer)
