Green Dayâ€™s Billie Joe Armstrong played a very special show in Oakland, California on Thursday. The rocker performed with his son Joey, along with touring Green Day member Jason White, as a group called Two and a Half Men. According to Restless-Press.com, the set included Green Day songs like â€œ99 Revolutions,â€ â€œChurch on Sunday,â€ â€œ2000 Light Years Awayâ€ and more. Itâ€™s a good thing Joey was on stage with Billie since the rocker told us he forgets about everything back at home while heâ€™s performing (AUDIO). Fan filmed footage is available at Instagram.com/ArmstrongJoey.
Foo Fighters agreed to play a show in Richmond, Virginia that was crowd-funded and organized without their knowledge. There was a campaign by local fans to sell tickets to a show that didnâ€™t yet exist, with the hopes the group would see the interest and play their first gig in the city since 1998. Fourteen-hundred tickets sold at 50 bucks each and it worked because the band tweeted at the organizers, â€œSee ya soonâ€¦ letâ€™s have a good time.â€ A venue and date has not yet been determined but you can learn more about the successful campaign at FooFightersRichmond.com.
