Green Day to Make SXSW Debut
After loading up fans with three new albums over the past few months, Green Day will be taking all that new music to SXSW. The rockers will make their debut at the Austin festival on March 15th at a double screening of ¡Cuatro! and Broadway Idiot at the Paramount Theatre, and they’ll play as part of the ACL Live series later that night at the Moody Theater.

It’ll mark the world premiere of Broadway Idiot, a documentary following Billie Joe Armstrong as the band adapted American Idiot as a Broadway musical. ¡Cuatro!, which debuted at the X Games last month, chronicles Green Day as they recorded their recent ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! trilogy. Though the band was forced to cancel and postpone shows due to Armstrong recovery in rehab, they’ll resume their tour on March 28th in Chicago.
