Green Day’s Surprise NYC Subway Set

Green Day surprised commuters in New York last night (January 16) with a busking performance that featured Jimmy Fallon.

Ahead of their intimate gig at the Irving Plaza on Thursday (January 18) and the subsequent release of their new album ‘Saviors’, Green Day were in town, where it was previously teased that they would be doing something special for The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, though they’re not scheduled to appear on the show.

Word of a potential impromptu gig quickly began making its way around the internet, and commuters at the Rockefeller Center subway station took to social media to share images of musical equipment and cameras being set up on the platforms.

Fans then began sharing footage of the band arriving in costumes, flanked by Jimmy Fallon, who joined the trio to perform all six songs of their setlist. Fallon played the tambourine. The band, per postings from those in attendance, played an acoustic set that included a cover of Bad Company’s ‘Feel Like Makin’ Love’, ‘Basket Case’, ‘Look Ma, No Brains!’, Kiss’ ‘Rock And Roll All Nite’, ‘Dilemma’ and ‘American Idiot’.
