Armstrong Plays Surprise Show With Son

INDIO, CA - APRIL 18: Musician Billie Joe Armstrong performs with The Replacements onstage during day 1 of the 2014 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival at the Empire Polo Club on April 18, 2014 in Indio, California
Most children would probably pass on having their dad jam or perform with them, but if your dad is Billie Joe Armstrong, it’s a bit different.

That was the case last Thursday (June 12th) when Billie Joe took to the stage with his son, Joey, for a surprise show at a record store in Oakland, Calif. called 1-2-3-4 Go! Records

According to, the father and son performed an 11-song set with Green Day sideman Jason White that included a number of early Green Day tracks, including “2,000 Light Years Away,” “Nuclear Family” and “409 In Your Coffee Maker.”

Joey Armstrong even posted a couple of videos from the show to his Instagram page, and we gotta say…if Tré Cool ever gets sick or needs to take some time off if Green Day are on tour, I think they have a good substitute available.
