  • Recordings from this show can be found here
  • Bob Blench: "Yes! I saw them play in Leeds last week and it was the best gig I've ever been to, so I kissed Billie Joe."
  • Lauren Bell: "...never knew my dad did the sound for Green Day, my favourite band, and my mum was probably there, 6 month pregnant with me, insane!"
  • James Winston Wright: "I remember being slightly boozed and trying to sell Billie Joe Armstrong my spare ticket for his own show outside the venue. Didn't know who he was back then, it was '94 I think."
  • Steven Nicholls: "I came after work to see that gig, I had to sweet charm Becky on the door to let me in as it was full. They'd already shut the doors to get rid of people hanging around, luckily they'd opened them again to let some air in when I arrived..."
  • Lis Tigi Maguire Coyle: "I worked that show too. People broke the windows to get in as they only played London and Leeds. Your dad will have assisted the touring crew with Green Day, and they had their own engineer. It quite possibly was my pal Randy Steffes, though I don't recall. He certainly worked for them back then."
  • chungking48: "One of the best shows I've ever been to. The band were on the verge of blowing up and everyone, including them, knew it. They played pretty much every song they had, took requests, and at one point the entire crowd sat on the floor so that Billie Joe could stage dive."
  • Ian Lawton: "Green Day suddenly weren’t much fun when they became famous, after being a grassroots punk band (actually I say that, Tre Cool was fine) I had to bribe them with a bag of weed to sit down for a line up shot out the back of Leeds Duchess of York. Dookie had just become massive and possibly their egos with it."
