Green Day make surprise London appearance

The band meet fans at a special DVD preview

Green Day made a special public appearance in London last night in front of a handful of fans.

The band were in town to introduce their new feature-length concert film ‘Bullet In A Bible’ at the Vue Cinema in Leicester Square, for an audience that included NME.COM competition winners.

Introducing the film, Billie Joe Armstrong said: “The main thing we gotta do is just to thank our crew, the guys, the guitar techs, the bass techs and drum techs and front of house people. Everybody, our crew manager, everyone backstage put their heart and soul behind what’s going on when we’re playing live, so thanks a lot for coming down and checking us out.

“It’s been the best year we’ve ever had and most of all thank you, thanks a lot, we really appreciate it, and we will be back.”

‘Bullet In A Bible’, released on November 14, was filmed at the band’s biggest ever shows, which took place at Milton Keynes Bowl this summer. The longform live film and documentary was directed by Sam Beyer, who also handled all of the videos from ‘American Idiot’.
