The band are hotly rumoured to be appearing at this weekend's festival

Rumours are hotting up that Green Day will take an unannounced slot at this weekend's Reading Festival.

The band are already in London to play an intimate show at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on Thursday (August 23), but a cryptic post by Billie Joe Armstrong on Instagram has said: "Hello England! What rhymes with shredding ??!!"

There have also been sightings of a 2012 tour tshirt that includes "Reading" on the itinerary between London and Paris.

Radio X's sneaky sources say that the band will definitely be playing at some point during Saturday afternoon at Reading… and apparently not on the main stage. That's all we know!  

The band's trio of new albums are set to drop over the next few months - ¡Uno! on September 4, ¡Dos! on November 12 and ¡Tré! on January 14.
