Green Day will release two documentaries in the near future: one documenting the making of their forthcoming three-album trilogy, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tre!, and another created from vintage (pre-Dookie) footage.
Quote from Billie Joe ArmstrongIt's not going to be the sitting down, head shot of me going, 'We started out blah blah blah.' We wanted to get into lifestyles of rock 'n' roll and playing rock n roll and letting the story kind of tell itself rather than create revisionist (history).

It seems as though Green Day is moving toward a "more power pop" sound for its upcoming trilogy of records, and consciously did not want to go back to the styles of Dookie or Kerplunk.
From the InterviewWhat did you think Green Day needed to do next, after American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown? You couldn’t do a third punk opera in a row.
People ask me all the time. Even my son asked me, “Dad, would you ever go back to playing songs like from [1994’s] Dookie and [1992’s] Kerplunk?” I love those records. I love the punk stuff I grew up on. But there are so many bands who make the mistake – “We’re going back, old-school.” Well, that’s all you’re doing. You already did it. So we’re...

Green Day is being forced to cancel the "secret" massive free show planned for this Friday in Burbank, CA.
Press StatementArrangements for this "secret" show were already under way, when permits needed for the show were denied by the city due to crowd control issues. The anticipated turnout was well into the thousands, and after monitoring the situation, fears were the number would dramatically swell and pose serious concern for safety of concert-goers once the location was made public.

We reported a few days ago that Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong played Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's wedding. According to this article, Armstrong performed "Last Night On Earth" (from 21st Century Breakdown) at Zuckerberg's request. The article brings up an interesting question, too - if you could have any musician play at your wedding, who would it be?
From the Article“Mark wanted me to play this song,” Armstrong said. “This song is one I wrote for my wife of 18 years.” [Armstrong] also called it a “wedding present to a friend.”
