Notes:
  • Recordings from this show can be found here
  • Rolling Stone: "Green Day injected a welcome dose of young snot, stealing the first half of the show with thrash-acoustic takes on favorites like When I Come Around."
  • Sonicnet: "MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Hometown punk rockers Green Day proved unplugged doesn't have to mean sedate Saturday on the first day of Neil Young's 13th annual Bridge School Benefit. Nearly two hours after Young opened the concert with his customary miniset, including his standard Bridge show opener, I Am a Child, Green Day stormed the stage with a galloping acoustic punk version of Geek Stink Breath from their 1995 album Insomniac. Moments before the show, Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark green khakis, walked in with a toddler in hand as his wife brought up the rear with their infant child in a stroller. The toddler could later be seen dancing at stage right as her punk-rock dad snarled the lyrics to such Green Day hits as She and When I Come Around."
