Notes:
  • Peter: "Green Day came out and opened with Nice Guys Finish Last. Billie Joe took some shots at George W. Bush, since this was in DC. After Time of Your Life, BJ stopped suddenly and pointed to someone in the crowd and said, 'I bet you heard that one on Seinfeld.' I thought that was the funniest thing he said all night, but not everyone got the joke. Oh well. And during Platypus he mocked hanging himself by the mic cable. And the Green Day backdrop changed twice, and confetti fell after Warning. So many of those trendy Gap-wearing girls were there, you know the ones who get on their jock boyfriends' shoulders and flash the crowd. Green Day needs to do a club tour. Please. There were a lot of young kids there, and the setlist seemed to cater to them, with plenty of simple, silly Nimrod songs like King For A Day and Platypus. I was hoping for some more off of Insomniac, or something random like J.A.R. or 80, but I guess they werent in that mood that night. Overall, good solid show, but I have come to expect even more from Green Day. I hope they do a club tour soon. Maybe then there will be more people who get it. But either way, Green Day is always able to make it a great show for all types of fans."
