Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong showed no signs of the bug that made him so violently ill he had to cancel a concert in Italy over the weekend when he took the stage at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.
His band performed a fierce rendition of their new single, “Let Yourself Go,” at the ceremony. The song comes from the band’s upcoming album trilogy “�Uno! �Dos! �Tre!,” the first part of which hits stores on Sept. 25.
Armstrong told MTV on the VMA red carpet that following his hospitalization he’s “doing better. It was a little rough,” he says. “But when you get a parasite inside your body — I’ve always had a parasite inside my body. This time he decided to dance a little bit more. We’re going to create a little chaos tonight, though. It’s going to be fun.”
Check out the performance below and weigh in: Did he live up to his promise? What do you think of the new Green Day single?
