Notes:
  • "This was my first Green Day concert, and I've been a fan for 7 years so this was a HUGE thing for me. We got up to the stadium and I stuck my head out the window and started screaming my head off. I walked up to the front and there were the tour buses. So I had to stop and pose for a picture, of course. We got to the doors and the line was huge. The Get Up Kids' set ended about 9:00 after that they thanked Green Day for putting them on tour and Green Day's stage started being set up. I'm such a loser. I was freaking out and hyperventilating. I was up against the bar in the pit and Bronco Bowl is tiny so I knew I'd be hella close. They were done setting up on about 9:30 and Green Day came on. When Mike walked on I screamed my ass off and got teary-eyed. I was right next to him. Like five feet away, 'could have touched him' close. They started with Nice Guys Finish Last and in the words of Billie, 'I'm so fucking happy I could cry.' Then Billie was like, 'I'm going to run for Governor of Texas! Vote for me in 2002! And our theme song will be...' He started to play Blood, Sex And Booze. It was cool as hell. They played for about two hours and fifteen minutes. During the end of Warning two guys were basically killing each other. Billie stopped the song and yelled at them. He was like, 'Hey, you two. Stop fighting, we're here to have a good time. No, let's not kick them out. Instead make them shake hands. OK guys, shake hands and you won't get kicked out. Now get naked. And rub your nipples.' It was such an awesome show. I got squirted with Billie Joe's squirt gun and Mike's water bottle. Never again will I wash my Dookie shirt. I can honestly say I had the time of my life. Billie even said we were the best first show they've ever had."
