Green Day Sings “Amy” Tribute at Secret Show

Green Day thrilled fans last week when they showed up at the Tiki Bar in Costa Mesa, California to perform a secret show. During their set the band played a slew of new songs from the album that they’ve been working on for the past few months, playing titles like “Carpe Diem,” “Sweet 16,” and “Nuclear Family.” Along with the new songs, the band also played classics that the crowd could sing and jump along to, such as “Minority” and “Burnout.” But perhaps the most special song to be played that night was the band’s tribute to Amy Winehouse, a song simple called “Amy.”

The song was dedicated to Amy Winehouse and was a song the band wrote for the late singer in which they ask to be her friend and sing her to sleep. The performance of the beautiful and moving piece was the first time the band had ever played the song for the public and days later they posted the full lyrics on their website.

Along with the lyrics, Green Day also said that they had been “writing and jamming” for months preparing for the new album, with a hint that fans can expect it to be out soon. All the benefits from the secret show at Costa Mesa’s Tiki Bar were donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. And this band isn’t the only one honoring Winehouse’s memory; U2, Ellie Goulding, Big Boi, and M.I.A. have also released their own tributes to the late singer.
