Notes:
  • Recordings from this show can be found here
  • Jake: "The concert ruled, but I did think they would take requests. It was awesome anyway. They played all these songs in an hour and a half. Started at 9:00, ended at 10:45, but this was truly the greatest show on earth. I was surprised at the age of some people. I saw very few little kids. A lot of younger girls who would be more into boybands. Some older people who I
    wouldn't think were into this. The Twin Cities really love Green Day, a lot of energy."
  • Nicole: "Earlier tonight, my fiance and I went to the Green Day concert in St. Paul. Everything was going fine through the first act, then that is when everything went horribly wrong. Don't get me wrong, we are not those people who have never been to their concerts before, so we knew what we were in for. My fiance is 6 foot and 250 pounds. He is not a pushover. I think of myself as a pretty 'go-with-the-flow' girl too, and that's usually fine. Tonight, however, we were in the third 'row' of people from the stage. We have been there before, so we knew it was going to get hot, sticky and dangerous, for lack of a better word. What we didn't expect was everyone climbing on top of everyone else and so on and so forth. To say the least, it was disgusting. There were 13 and 14 year olds getting trampled on and knocked to the floor. That is not the worst part. The fact that the security did nothing to these scumbags who were forcing themselves on everyone was bad, but the fact that the band themselves did nothing was worse. Now I know, they probably see this kind of thing all over the world. It's not new to me either, but isn't there something that can be done about this? Can they stop the concert, or point out that it is not cool to participate in all this melodrama? I don't know. All I do know is that I bought these concert tickets because Green Day is my fiance's all time favorite band and I thought we'd have fun. Now, instead, we stayed at the concert for only the first 2 songs, then pushed our way through the crowd to get the hell out of there. It was a waste of money and I don't know if my fiance will ever go to one again, let alone remain a fan of the band. I know it is not their fault and they cannot control their fans, but they have to have some power, right? He (and I) were very disappointed."
