The Green Day frontman stepped in for an injured Paul Westerberg
The Green Day frontman appeared with the Minneapolis band as their own frontman Paul Westerberg played most of the set sitting on a sofa, having suffered a back injury. Armstrong, whose own music was heavily influenced by The Replacements, quipped at one point during the set: “Dreams really do come true!”
The group wore matching tan suits, except Westerberg who opted for a khaki jacket, for the performance and played some of their classic tracks like ‘Alex Chilton’, ‘Can’t Hardly Wait’ and ‘IOU’. You can watch fan footage of the latter at the bottom of the page.
