Green Day treated fans in Quebec City to new song ‘1981’ live for the first time.
Playing at Quebec City’s Plaines d’Abraham on Sunday night, Billie Joe Armstrong and co. included the tune’s live debut among the show’s 24-track setlist.
They introduced it roughly two-thirds of the way into the set, in-between ‘Warning’ track ‘Minority’ and a cover of Operation Ivy’s ‘Knowledge’.
Have a listen to the track via the fan footage below.
This song could be the first taste of the follow-up to 2020’s ‘Father Of All Motherfuckers’. The band have been working on new material in the UK for the last few months, teasing fans on social media with a rumoured album title of ‘1972’.
The punk-rock legends were playing at Festival d’été de Québec, a multi-genre music event held over eleven days which this year was also graced by Foo Fighters and Lamb Of God.
Among their upcoming live dates is a headline slot at When We Were Young Festival in Las Vegas alongside Blink-182.
