  • "So finally after about 15 minutes of setting up Green Day comes out. Billie Joe, Mike and Tre come out and immediately smash into Nice Guys Finish Last and Castaway without taking a break. During Castaway Billie yells, 'Alright, New Jersey!' Billie Joe then tells the crowd that the show is being filmed for Reverb on HBO. Then the band plays three more songs in a row. Church On Sunday, Longview and Welcome To Paradise. During Longview Billie comes out in a pig mask. This is also one of several points where a person came out with a water gun and soaked the crowd (me in particular). Billie Joe then for some reason says, 'Why would you want to wear condoms if it takes away all the feeling?! By the way, that was not a public service announcement. This is when you learn to fuck, kids, right now.' He also says, 'We've pirated a radio station with no commercials and no metal-rap-rock bullshit and all punk rock, 24 hours a day and this is one of the songs that will be on it.' The band plays Hitchin' A Ride, followed by Brain Stew and Jaded. Billie now takes requests from the audience. Alot of people were yelling 86 and Billie said, 'You wanna hear 86? We just played that in Boston and do you really want to be like those motherfuckers in Boston?' The bands ends up playing Coming Clean and 2,000 Light Years Away as requests. Before 2,000 Light Years Away Billie leads the crowd in a 'Fuck Boston' chant. During Knowledge Billie pulls up a guitarist, bassist and drummer. Who finish the rest of the song quite well. Basket Case begins and Billie lets the crowd sing after that they go right into She and both Billie and another guy come out with water guns once again. Jason comes out to play guitar for King For A Day and Billie is running around singing. Then the band plays Waiting and Minority and quits the stage. The crowd is cheering and after a couple minutes Billie comes back alone. He starts playing Good Riddance but surprises us all and plays The Ballad Of Wilhelm Fink and then he plays Good Riddance The rest of the band rejoins. '1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4,' yells Billie and here comes Warning with Jason and Billie on acoustic guitars. The band then plays Platypus with Jason on guitar and Billie running around, singing. Going back and forth between sides having the left yell '1' and the right yell '2.' Then the band plays When I Come Around and then Tre knocks over his drums and Mike throws his bass into the pile. The show ends with Macy's Day Parade with Billie on electric and Jason playing the acoustic part. Awesome show. Green Day were on for nearly 2 hours."
