'Unreal - thank God she said yes'

Green Day have shared a video of a fan proposing to his girlfriend in front of them at an in-store record signing.

The romantic gesture took place last week, much to the delight of surrounding fans and the band themselves.

“Aw, that was amazing,” said frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, reacting to the proposal. “Unreal. Thank God she said yes.”

Meanwhile, Green Day recently confirmed to NME that work on the long-awaited movie adaptation of their seminal 2004 album ‘American Idiot’ is progressing well.

“We’ve got a green light from HBO, and the script is currently going through a couple of rewrites here and there, so I’m not sure when exactly we’re going to start shooting, but it’s definitely all systems go at the moment,” Armstrong told NME.
