Pop Disaster Tour, Ice Palace in Tampa, FL
May 14, 2002
Other Acts:
Blink-182 (co-headliner), Jimmy Eat World
  • Incomplete setlist
  • Adrienne Hundley: "After Jimmy Eat World came the excitement and craziness of Billie Joe Armstrong, Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt, a.k.a. Green Day. Their set started with alarms, spotlights and a whole lot of crowd energy. The music was awesome and pretty much everyone in the arena was jumping around at the order of Billie Joe, who acted (and was treated) like king during the whole Green Day performance. The band played old and semi-new hits, including Basket Case, She, Longview, Warning and Minority. During an especially crowd-oriented part of the show, three audience members were dragged up from the mosh pit to play a song together, one on drums, one on bass and one on guitar. Their performance drove the crowd even wilder. At the end of the set, Tre ran through his drum set, Mike smashed his bass and Billie Joe played the popular Good Riddance on an acoustic guitar."
  • "I loved it, although I was let down by Blink. I figured Green Day was the headliner but they weren't, it was Blink and they weren't worthy of it. I'm not being biased, but Green Day had the best non-pop concert I've ever seen in person. They worked the crowd, played perfect and sounded great. They played for about an hour and 45 minutes; a set including basically the entire Dookie album, some from Insomniac and a few of their new songs. Blink on the other hand tried to be really funny and all, but their jokes weren't too great. They only played for about an hour but the ending was good. They also sounded like poo."
