  • Kevin Raub: "From there, 'Pop Disaster' is putting it mildly, more like 'Pop Apocalypse' without a heavenly ending. To say Green Day and Blink-182's act is stale would be to say the Pope is Catholic. Musically, Green Day is still viable, the crunchy guitar attack of Welcome to Paradise and 2,000 Light Years Away still a powerful force live. But it has come to a point where something a little more thrilling needs to happen to make the show more interesting. The band's 16-song set was peppered with pyro, profanity ('Somebody fuck me now!' - Billie Joe Armstrong after Hitchin' a Ride), and confetti, but musically, the band was simply dry and uninspiring. There were moments: A supplemental second guitarist added spunk to Maria and Minority, and a set-closing rendition of Good Riddance (Time of Your Life), featuring Armstrong on solo electric guitar, became a edgier, sped-up affair worth hearing twice. But in the end, it was the silliness of a horn section consisting of a bumblebee, a chicken, and two mariachis; and Green Day's same ol' same ol' that dogged the show and, unfortunately, a band that is extremely talented."
