Green Day play new tunes in LA

Green Day debuted new material at an intimate Los Angeles show last night.

The 'American Idiot' band debuted songs from their '¡Uno!' '¡Dos!', '¡Tre!' album trilogy at the show, held for fan club members at Los Angeles' Echoplex venue.

Tickets had gone on sale yesterday morning and some fans had camped out since 5am to get hold of them.

After opening with old favourites 'Welcome To Paradise' and 'American Idiot' - which were met with a mosh pit - frontman Billie Joe Armstrong asked: "Well how are you? Are you ready for some new f***ing songs?"

The band then played 'Nuclear Family', 'Stay The Night' and 'Carpe Diem', taken from '¡Uno!', the first album in the forthcoming trilogy, released in September.

After playing the new album's first single, 'Oh Love', Billie, sighed and said: "Ah, I feel like playing that again!"

The trio - completed by bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tre Cool - went on to play 'Murder City', and more new songs, including 'Kill The DJ' and 'Let Yourself Go'.

Green Day will release '¡Uno!' on September 24, '¡Dos!' on October 13 and '¡Tre!' on January 15.
