Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong played a gig with his son Joey Armstrong in Oakland, California earlier this week.
Under the name Two And A Half Men the father and son were joined by touring member of Green Day Jason White for the show at 1-2-3-4 Go Records, reports Restless Press. The set included Green Day songs ‘Church On Sunday’, ‘2,000 Light Years Away’, ’99 Revolutions’, ‘Little Boy Named Train’, ‘Stuck With Me’ and ‘409 In Your Coffee Maker’. See a picture Joey Armstrong posted of the show on Instagram below, as well as a video clip of the band performing ‘2,000 Light Years Away’. Joey Armstrong plays drums in his own group Emily’s Army.
Green Day said they had planned to take a ‘break’ following their Australian tour dates, which took place in February and March of this year. Speaking to Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2, Billie Joe Armstrong said: “…we’re going to take a break. We haven’t really been doing much. So it’s just nice to kind of do some other things, y’know, when we get ready to do Green Day again, our batteries will be charged.”
Armstrong and Norah Jones released an Everly Brothers tribute album, ‘Foreverly’, in November 2013. The track-by track homage to the Everly Brothers’ own 1958 LP, ‘Songs Our Daddy Taught Us’, was recorded in nine days at Manhattan’s Magic Shop.
