  • cechergontran: "On my very first day of high school they did a school wide 'treasure hunt' and the winner was to get get a pair of tickets to that show."
  • andy_chico_mak: "Green Day in Montreal on October 27, 1995. This was at the old Forum, the last show I saw there before they tore it down and converted it to a movie theatre. This was for their Insomniac album. The Riverdales opened; I was a big fan of their self titled debut."
  • Warren Wilansky: "I was a moderately early support of Green Day and remember when I first heard Dookie (which I only discovered afterwards, wasn't their first album). I was the Music Director at CFLI, the Loyola Campus college radio station at Concordia University so I got a copy of an early release of the album. As a music director I had to listen to and evaluate all the music that came into the station and decide if it was something that we should shelve or put on heavy, medium or light rotation. About 10 seconds into Burnout I decided this was a heavy rotation album. Green Day clearly had found that alt-radio pop-punk balance that made Dookie exciting and energetic but also tuneful. When Green Day rolled into Montreal to support their next release, Insomniac, I thought it would be a lot of fun to see them live, even if it was at a major venue. I don’t remember who I went to the show with or much about it except that I enjoyed it and thought they were a pretty solid live band. Thanks to setlist.fm I was able to dig up the songs played at the show. Funny enough, years later, I still quite like Green Day. While they are inconsistent album to album, American Idiot is a classic that deserves all the praise that it received. My only criticism of Green Day is something that isn't their fault really, but I hate most of the pop-punk acts that they spawned. Thanks for a great show!"
