Courtney Love plays Hole’s ‘Celebrity Skin’ with Billie Joe Armstrong

Courtney Love joined Billie Joe Armstrong‘s covers band The Coverups onstage in London again last night (March 1) where she delivered a joint performance of Hole‘s ‘Celebrity Skin’ – watch below.

The Green Day side-project – famed for their impromptu gigs with renditions of rock and punk staples – played a 25-song set at the 100 Club on Oxford Street yesterday after taking to the stage at The Garage in Islington on Tuesday (February 27), per Setlist.FM.

Love made a surprise appearance at the first show, assisting Armstrong and co. on covers of Tom Petty‘s ‘Even The Losers’, and Cheap Trick’s ‘He’s A Whore’ and ‘Surrender’. Last night, the singer returned to play Hole’s 1998 hit ‘Celebrity Skin’.

She also participated in a version of David Bowie‘s classic single ‘Suffragette City’, and again played ‘Surrender’ by Cheap Trick. Additionally, The Coverups took on Bryan Adams‘ ‘Summer Of ’69’, The Strokes‘ ‘Last Nite’, The Clash‘s ‘Should I Stay Or Should I Go’ and more at the 350-capacity venue.

Green Day, meanwhile, released their 14th album ‘Saviors’ in January. They’re set to embark on a huge world tour in May, with the UK and Ireland leg including a show at Wembley Stadium in June. The trio will also make a headline appearance at this year’s Isle Of Wight Festival.

Armstrong and co. have announced that they’ll be playing ‘American Idiot’ and ‘Dookie’ in full on the ‘Saviors’ tour to mark the classic albums’ 20th and 30th anniversaries, respectively. Find any remaining tickets for the UK/Ireland dates here.
