Notes:
  • Incomplete setlist
  • "The place was packed! Billie Joe even said, 'This place is way overcrowded, but I won't say anything.' Green Day started off with Nice Guys Finish Last, but only played about 4 songs from Nimrod. I was a little surprised to hear Green Day go back so far and play Knowledge and Paper Lanterns, but I was thrilled because I love those songs. Throughout the show, Billie Joe and Mike sprayed water from at the crowd in the front. In the middle of the show, one kid was on someone's shoulders, shining a flashlight in Billie's eyes, so Billie got a flashlight and said, 'How the fuck do you like it? No one wants to look at you, get the fuck down. My flashlight is bigger than yours.' Billie posed like Marilyn Manson and chanted, 'The beautiful people, the beautiful people,' when starting Longview. Billie was very funny. Tre was quite calm until the end when he trashed his drum set. He jumped on it, causing it to collapse and the picked pieces of it up, then smashed it back down. Mike didn't say much, except a few things that I couldn't understand. Finally, after their encore, Mike and Billie broke out the champagne and squirted it on fans in the front. Green Day sounded awesome, and put on a GREAT show. They were truly spectacular and no one was dissapointed!"
