Iconic Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong took the stage and made waves at Live Nation's exclusive Cannes Lions private party, as he finished a scintillating set by saying 'Good Riddance' and launching his $5,000 guitar into the swimming pool!
The event was hosted at the most prestigious 8 bedroom mega villa on the French Riviera, Villa Alang Alang, a Riviera Luxury Rentals exclusive rental property. Villa Alang Alang is the perfect setting for such exclusive events for top-level executives.
The event was hosted by Live Nation's Russell Wallach, Global President of Media and Sponsorship, and Jennifer Breithaupt, Citi's Global Consumer Chief Marketing Officer. With around 200 guests in attendance, the party was sure to be a blast, with senior execs from Vox Media, Asics, Pepsi and Twitter among the crowd! A guest list worthy of the luxury and prestige at heavenly Villa Alang Alang.
It was a family affair as Bille Joe Armstrong's son also join him for the intimate concert, as he set the beat on drums. Between songs, Armstrong opened up and revealed how he first met his wife, on tour with his band at 18.
The Green Day lead also showed his compassionate side: "It’s so important that we look out for each other and we show compassion for humanity and our neighbor. I don’t know who it is in France, but in California, it’s called Mexico." Then, Billie spoke about USA president Donald Trump - it would be safe to say Billie thinks Trump is an 'American Idiot'!
Overall, the party at Villa Alang Alang was a huge success with great fun had by all guests! We can't wait for next years party!
