Green Day - Green Day To Perform At Mtv Video Music Awards

Green Day will perform their new single at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs).

The band - made up of Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool - will give the first televised performance of 'Oh Love', from their new album trilogy, '¡Uno!', '¡Dos!', '¡Tres!', at Los Angeles' Staples Center on September 7.

Billie Joe Armstrong said: ''We're excited to perform on this year's MTV Video Music Awards. MTV has continuously supported us during our career, and we can't think of a better place to play our first TV performance for the albums.''

The band have previously said they don't know if releasing three new albums between September and January is a good idea or not.

Billie said: ''This could possibly be the greatest idea we've ever had or it could possibly be the dumbest idea we've ever had. And that's really exciting to think about.

''We don't have a f**king clue what we're doing as far as the future is concerned. And it's kind of exciting to think of it that way.''

Other acts confirmed to play at the MTV VMAs include Alicia Keys, who will premiere a Brand New song from her upcoming 'Girl on Fire' album, and British boy band One Direction, who are first-time VMA performers and nominees.
