Green Day will perform live at this year's VMAs!
Brace yourselves guys, because the next artist CONFIRMED to perform at the 2012 VMAs is... GREEN DAY! Not only will the "Let Yourself Go" rockers be performing on the big night, but they're also slated to debut BRAND-NEW music from ¡Uno!, the first of their three forthcoming albums.
Their 2012 MTV VMA performance will be the fifth time the rockers grace the VMA stage (can you tell we're really into Green Day?), and as you might have already gathered, this year's show is on track to be a night of live music so good that if you miss it, you'll probably become a social pariah (plus, you'll miss out on all that good music!) We've got Pink performing a brand-new song from The Truth About Love, VMA nominees One Direction fulfilling all our boy band needs, Alicia Keys handling things on the R&B front and clearly, Green Day's got the rock moment all covered.
This epic Green Day news probably has you wanting more from the East Bay rockers, so make sure to catch the boys' "Oh Love" video premiere and a 30-minute interview during "MTV First: Green Day," airing Wednesday, Aug. 15, at 7:49 p.m. ET on MTV! Users from outside the United States can watch by visiting OhLove.MTV.com simultaneously.
