Green Day are set to play their first show since frontman Billie Joe Armstrong was admitted to rehab last year, at SXSW in Austin, Texas.

The trio will be making their SXSW debut on March 15 at ACL Live at the Moody Theatre on the same day of the world premiere of the film Broadway Idiot and also a screening of the documentary ¡Cuatro! take place at the Paramount Theatre, also in Austin.

The latter film looks into the making of the band's trilogy of album releases in 2012. Broadway Idiot, meanwhile, is described as a look "behind the curtain with Green Day lead singer, Billie Joe Armstrong, as he ventures onto Broadway with American Idiot".

Last year Green Day cancelled all their scheduled live appearances for 2012 and early 2013 after Billie Joe Armstrong checked into a rehab clinic following an onstage meltdown.

Following their SXSW appearance, the band's postponed US dates restart at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois on March 28.

Green Day will play London's Emirates Stadium, the huge 60,000 capacity stadium commonly used by Arsenal Football Club, on June 1. Green Day will also be playing this year's Optimus Alive festival in Portugal, which takes place July 12-14.
