Green Day aired some brand new material and played a host of classic tracks at an intimate, fans only club show in Los Angeles last night.
The band started their set with 'Welcome To Paradise' and 'American Idiot', before launching into new material from their upcoming '¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré!' album trilogy.
The band then broke into 'Nuclear Family', 'Stay The Night', 'Carpe Diem' and 'Oh Love', all of which are taken from '¡Uno!', which is released on September 24.
After playing 'Oh Love' – the new album's first single - Armstrong sighed and said "Ah, I feel like playing that again!" He then took a fan’s pair of rainbow coloured sunglasses and put them on briefly, before playing 'Murder City'. Later in the set, the band performed 'Kill The DJ' and 'Let Yourself Go', which also feature on the first album in the forthcoming trilogy.
As well as the new song, the band also played a number of track from their back catalogue, including 'Christie Road', 'Welcome To Paradise', '2,000 Light Years Away', 'Longview' and 'She'.
Fans had been camping outside the Echoplex since 5am. Tickets for the tiny club gig went on sale the morning of the show, selling out in seconds.
