Notes:
  • Scott Iwasaki: " The better the bands, the harder they work. At least that's what happened last night at the Blink 182/Green Day/Jimmy Eat World concert in the E Center. When Jimmy Eat World opened the night - which will go down in history as the Pop Disaster Tour - the energy in the air could have powered a small city. Never has Green Day played a more explosive set. And it had to, just to keep the momentum rolling. Hailing from Berkeley, Calif., Green Day - guitarist/vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tre Cool - took the audience on a quirky trip that included some heavy punk rock and ska-punk anthems. Basket Case and Welcome to Paradise bounced the audience in the seats and had the general admission crowd surfing and moshing. Then, with a smile and little punk-rock attitude, Armstrong announced he needed three volunteers to take over Green Day instruments during a rousing cover of Operation Ivy's Knowledge. Three amateur Salt Lakers jumped on stage and took over the drum, bass and guitar, while Armstrong sang the final verse. Armstrong was so impressed with the local guitarist that he actually gave him a guitar as a souvenir. The set ended with Cool stage-diving into his drum set and Dirnt smashing his bass. The encore featured a solo Armstrong singing Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)."
