I have grown out of many bands I loved when I was young, bands I thought I would be listening to for the rest of my life. But not Green Day. They are still one of my all time favorite bands, and I love seeing them play live.
Tuesday’s show was no exception. There were no opening bands, no filler. It was all Green Day, all night long.
They started with the new album, 21st Century Breakdown. It was good, but it’s tough listening to an album for the first time live. Then they moved backwards in time. American Idiot got the crowd warmed up, Nimrod got them excited, and of course Dookie had the entire place on their feet dancing. Green Day can do no wrong. What a show!
Seats weren’t the best (I would have preferred the floor but it sold out).
