Green Day Jams With 11-Year-Old Boy Onstage And Gives Him Free Guitar

Most people go to a Green Day concert expecting to walk away with some great memories. 11-year-old Juul walked away from a Green Day concert with one of frontman Billie Joe Armstrong’s guitars! Armstrong brought the youngster up for a jam onstage during Green Day’s set at the Pinkpop Festival in the Netherlands and afterwards gave him the guitar.

Juul got Armstrong’s attention from the front row during the show and the frontman asked him if knew three chords. The schoolboy said he did then Armstrong told him to come up onstage and handed him a guitar. Juul had a short jam with the band and showed off some great rock and roll stage moves while he was playing, as you can see below.

If you’ve ever been onstage in front of a huge crowd before you’ll know it can be very intimidating, but Juul was not fazed and very naturally rocked out with the band. He had a huge smile on his face and shed a few tears of happiness after the jam, and that’s when Armstrong told him he could keep the guitar. Juul screamed ecstatically and jumped up and down before heading offstage and all he could say in an interview afterwards was that he was “shocked”.

Green Day are fond of getting fans up onstage for spontaneous jams at shows. At a gig in Chicago Armstrong invited a teen fan, Thomas Bulvan, from the crowd to join the band onstage. Bulvan convinced Armstrong that he knew “When I Come Around” and then played the entire song with the band, even adding a few vocal parts when Armstrong gave him the mic. Bulvan, much like Juul, showed off a really great natural stage presence, as you can see in the video below.

The video with Juul was a big hit online, attracting 8.3 million views. Many fans said they cried just like Juul did at the beautiful moment, while others commended Armstrong for his big heart, adding comments like “This is one of the reasons why Billie Joe Armstrong is one of the best guys in rock.” If you would like to see more from Green Day, you can subscribe to their YouTube channel.
