Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has said in a recent interviews that the band were in the studio writing new material for the follow-up to 2009's 21st Century Breakdown, but this show may be the first real indicator of how far along the band is in the process.

According to Green Day fansite, titles of new songs included "8th Avenue Serenade," "Too Young to Die" and "Nuclear Family." The band also reportedly played a cover of Ozzy Osbourne's "Goodbye To Romance."

Green Day released a live album earlier this year titled Awesome As Fuck.
