Notes:
  • Oh, the Concerts I Have Seen: "This was a really fun show as there were a lot friends there that we ran into during the show. Green Day was the musical highlight of the day for me. The drummer went nuts at the end of the set, kicked holes in his drum, knocked the entire drum kit to the ground then poured lighter fluid all over it and set it on fire. As flames soared from the drum kit Billie Joe came out with an acoustic guitar, sat down in front of the fire and played a solo acoustic version of Good Riddance. That was amazing but the most memorable thing that happened that day was late afternoon when dark clouds of thick black smoke started pouring out of the parking lot entrance area. It turned out that one of my best friends' car overheated while they were waiting to get into the parking lot, it caught fire and literally burnt up before the fire trucks could even get there. In true 'my friends' fashion once they realized there was nothing they could do to help with the fire they came into the show. I took them home after the show and they dealt with the car drama the next day. God, I loved being young and dumb."
