Courtney Love joined Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong and his covers band side-project The Coverups at a tiny London gig last night (27 February).

Armstrong performed covers of classics by David Bowie, Ramones, Buzzcocks, The Clash, Pretenders and more at Islington’s 600-capacity The Garage before revealing his special guest.

“Ladies and gentlemen, Courtney Love,” Armstrong announced halfway through the show. “Thank you, Billie Joe. My name is Courtney Love – you may not remember me. I’ve been living in a cave in Birmingham for about nine years. We’ll give this a f–king try, right?”

Love then joined the group for takes on Cheap Trick’s 1977 power pop classic He’s A Whore and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ Even The Losers and later returned for an encore of Cheap Trick’s Surrender. Love also implied that her group Hole may return before long.
