The Living End
  • Me and my friend Kelly both really love Green Day, but that was the first time either of us had seen them live, and let me tell you, it was great. We got their plenty early to get good seats and sat around waiting for at least an hour. Finally, Green Day came out and opened right away with Nice Guys Finish Last, like all the other shows on the tour so far. They played around with the crowd in between just about every song. At one point, Billie told us to help up people who fall in the moshpits or after crowdsurfing, and apparently some jock said 'fuck you' to him. That really pissed Billie off, and he went off on the kid, 'This is my show, it's not a fucking football game. I swear to God if you don't help those kids up I'll come down their and fuck you up your fucking ass.' He tore into the kid for a few minutes, saying 'fuck' whenever possible, it was great. When they pulled up people from the crowd to form the new band, a friend of mine named Tony Martinez was pulled up to play guitar. This kid has a band of his own out here and just about all they play is Green Day, so it was probably a dream come true (as lame as that sounds) for him. They also did their usual heavy metal covers and even messed around singing hooks from Britney Spears and NSync and such, and everyone booed when they asked if they should play some Limp Bizkit, it was funny."
