Green Day put another variation on their recent penchant for a surprise/last minute show last night. This time the boys were called in as replacements for Janes Addiction (who had to pull out due to family reasons) in Oakland last night. Green Day were called in just an hour before the show! How fucking cool?! Tre Cool! (And on his Birthday too!)

The news broke on LIVE 105 radio:

"Unfortunately, one of the members of Jane's Addiction had an emergency family situation. The band is not able to play tonight's show a scheduled.

NEVER FEAR! Local heroes Green Day are here to save the day!"

So Green Day were added to the bill for the "Not So Silent Night" Christmas show being held at the 20,000 capacity Oracle Arena, along with Beta State, Young The Giant, Bush, Mumford & Sons and Floerence and The Machine (- who you might know covered songs from Nimrod prior to their breakthrough).

There were some tickets left at the box office, so some Green Day fans in the vicinity made a mad dash to get to the show on time! A few rumours just before the show suggested that Green Day might play Dookie in its entirety. That wasn't quite the case, although Billie Joe announced they'd be playing a lot of "old shit" and so they did, playing classics such as Burnout, Going To Pasalacqua and Nice Guys Finish Last.

Adrienne tweeted this during the show (along with a photo):

"The master at work ;)"
