Cobo Arena in Detroit, MI

  • Incomplete setlist
  • "I saw Green Day 10 years ago on the Insomniac tour too. Setlist was about the same, except no Road To Acceptance and they played Walking Contradiction instead of 86."
  • "November 16, 1995. Cobo Arena in Detroit. Ah, good times indeed. I missed Walking Contradiction, though. That would have been cool to have heard that one live."
  • Jae Stanley: "That was a great show! I was there, and it was the first time I had seen them live. Man, I wish I had a recording of that show but sadly, I don't. I added that setlist based on memory. I kept reliving it in my head for months and years. I even made a mixtape the following day based on their setlist. I would have to make due with a recording from another show on that tour. I don't remember hearing Walking Contradiction, but I do remember 86. Road to Acceptance must have been an impromptu performance because it was played between F.O.D. and Paper Lanterns. Billie Joe broke a string during F.O.D. and started playing Road to Acceptance with a totally different guitar (first time I had seen him play a guitar other than Blue). This is all based on memory. I have nothing physical to back it up. I doubt my stubb and Insomniac tour shirt will be much help either"
  • "Before the incident, MTV caught up with Green Day at the Cobo Arena in Detroit, MI on November 16, 1995. They were interviewed on topics such as if touring gets boring for them, how Billie Joe and Tre Cool are new fathers, playing bigger venues, Ticketmaster and Pearl Jam, the remainder of their Insomniac Tour and what they do on their days off."
