Green Day slipped Guns N' Roses' classic 'Sweet Child O' Mine' and AC/DC's 'Highway To Hell' into their Austin setlist on Friday night.
Green Day where in Texas to showcase at SXSW and show the world that singer Billie Joe Armstrong was back in action after his recent 21st century breakdown.
The band was about to embark on a world tour towards the end of last year when Armstrong broke down and had to undergo drug rehabilitation. The unfortunate timing came just as Green Day was about to release their trilogy of albums 'Uno', 'Dos' and 'Tre'.
Armstrong has now recovered and Green Day used the SXSW music conference to premiere two movies 'Cuatro' and 'Broadway Idiot'.
On Friday night they performed at Austin's ACL Moody Theater.
