Kahuna Summer Stage in Wilmington, DE
June 23, 2001
  • "Since it was outside and there were no seats I was able to get there early and get my spot right in front of Billie Joe, no lie I was in the front leaning on the rail as Billie played on. No requests were taken and for some reason the Living End didn't play, instead some stinky band from Baltimore played for way too long. Throughout the show Billie was squirting everyone with a big supersoaker. He and Mike also did their usual squiriting of everyone with water bottles which of one I was fortunate enough to keep. Billie broke a string on the first song Nice Guys Finish Last but played on and then switched his guitar back to Blue until the old one got a new string. Billie Joe called out the 'hey-oh's' all night long as the audience responded enthusiastically. He didn't strip tonight but the horn players were out on a few songs including King For a Day as Billie ran up and down the stage as he pointed at random people in the audience as usual. The band recruited audience members to play Knowledge and then they were ordered to stage dive by BJ. When Billie played Time of Your Life he brought his two sons out, Joey and Jakob, as Billie smiled and continued on with the song until the two decided to leave the stage. All in all it was really cute to watch. Tre then lit his drums on fire but left a cymbal and one drum left so that he could play Warning and Macy's Day Parade. Then Mike smashed his bass and the amazing trio called it a night after playing riverside for thousands of crazy fans at Kahunaville in Wilmington, Delaware. It was the most amazing thing I've ever seen and I will never forget that night."
