    Growing up in northern Ohio, I had surprisingly never visited the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. As Green Day became closer to their eligibility year, I vowed I wouldn't go until they got in — and luckily for me, it didn't take long! I can't believe it's been three years already. I've visited twice since then and I recently realized that I've never compiled my photos of all the Green Day artifacts I found in one spot on the forum. So I figured this thread could serve as an ongoing record and discussion of anything else Green Day-related that pops up there in the future, since many of the exhibits are updated or changed often. So if you've ever visited Cleveland (though honestly, why would you? ) and found something I haven't posted here, please reply with your own photos! Note: If you want to read some of the exhibit descriptions, you can zoom in on the actual-sized photo by clicking it twice. Regular exhibits: Induction exhibit (May 2015): Promotional stuff: Bookmobile (September 2017):

    If you don't hear from me in the next 20 years it means I'm still looking for that photo of Mike looking at gdc

    Can we all just appreciate for a minute how amazing Billie is that he actually went to the venue to tell the fans in person? He didn’t have to do that but it tells you the kind of person he is that he did. ❤️

    Concerning to say the least. The only thing that could cause this would probably be a life or death scenario. I hope that whomever's families are affected are embraced and supported by the GDC in this time of need. Our GDC group is the last thing on their minds right now but I sincerely wish that the love and support from us helps in some way during this difficult time and during the challenges they face, whatever they might be. I hadn't thought about "my show", but I hope they are back together at that point because it will hopefully mean that this situation turned out ok. And also so we can show our support and help heal through music and togetherness. But I honestly don't care at all about the show aside from that, whomever is affected should take all the time they need to handle whatever the situation may be. I know that's awful corny but I mean it sincerely.

    Incredibly insightful post as always, so I'm not going to rehash anything you said there- that was great. I'm just going to hijack your thread since I know you're part of the music industry and you know it as well as anyone else on this thread, and I would love your perspective. Tickets for the RI show were $27.50 and I believe they were likely listed at a similar level for all shows. Assuming 500 capacity in RI (which is generous), that's about $10k gross. Granted, I'm sure the venue splits here are favorable since they're bringing in an outsized/ huge act, so let's make the really aggressive assumption they get to net the entire gate and the venue's take is only beverage and food (and this is not the norm)- that means $10k to cover travel, crew, etc. for this show. That's breakeven after factoring in these costs. I am not sure if anyone's mentioned this, but I would speculate that Billie wants to make sure Matika and the others are paid well for this tour- maybe at least a couple thousand a night. So now, with crew, band, etc. costs included Billie is personally in the red here. And yes, he can afford it, but how cool is that? If anything, Billie is making no money on this endeavor and I'm speculating he is knowingly subsidizing this to some level. That's cool. They sold these shows out in seconds, he could have charged $50, $75, $100 and the result would've been the same. Keep that in mind- Billie's paying us to play for us! Also, I ran the inflation calculator and the ticket cost is LESS when adjusted for inflation than what they charged for Insomniac ($15/ arena) and Nimrod ($17/ club) around here. Again, no tears spilled for Billie since he's done well financially, but it's not lost on me. He treats us well.

    I've already said it but god damn The Longshot makes me so proud of Billie. LIFL is an amazing album and I can't believe he made pretty much all by himself. The joy he gets from playing these small shows makes me so happy even though I'll never attend one of them. I love how much he posts about this project, you can tell he's proud of it and it brings me such joy. Sorry if this post is boring I'm just BURSTING with pride and joy over this and need to vent lol But if anyone can relate to these feelings, it's you guys 14 years in and he still manages to blow me away. I love this man so damn much. Pure Perfection.

    I like how right at the start it seems like it's just gonna be one of Billie's usual I-have-nothing-to-say-but-I'll-go-live-anyway livestreams, and then all of a sudden BAM! The Sass Queen is in da house.

    ^^^ Gotta love Mike. What a wingman. Every time Billie makes a political post and gets overwhelmed by trolls Mike steps in with backup. 💚💚 Rock solid.

    and clearly it hit a sore spot for him, and now he's trying to hide it but he can't hide it and his true emotions are rising to the surface which are that green day is done and billie mike and tre all hate each other and never want to play together again and that is probably because rev rad didn't sell as well as american idiot and also because the trilogy was a failure and also because he uses vocal filters now and also because he doesn't wear eyeliner anymore and also because mike grew a beard and also because billie hates his fans who support trump, this all confirms it, green day are done and they hate each other. shut this site down, its over folks, goodbye

    1990/07/07 - The Unicorn, Milwaukee, Wisconsin - They didn't get to the venue until after the show had ended 1990/08/02 - The Grange, Fort Collins, Colorado - They were in Kansas at the time. They must have never called to cancel. 1991/06/15 - Toe Jam, Long Beach, California - They didn't make it 1991/06/29 - Cattle Club, Sacramento, California - Tre booked this show. Green Day claim it wasn't Tre, and just someone pretending to be him. 1991/08/15 - Audubon Skate Park, Louisville, Kentucky - They confessed to getting drunk and just not showing up 1991/12/31 - Juzi, Göttingen, Germany - Van broke down 1992/05/30 - ABC No Rio, New York, New York - Green Day played somewhere else instead because they got offered more money 1992/06/05 - The Pole Barn, Otsego, Michigan - They never showed up 1992/10/18 - Macondo, Los Angeles, California - Tre broke his foot so they cancelled 1993/01/05 - KC Pavillion, Corpus Christi, Texas - Cancelled due to illness The following were all cancelled due to Mike's arm injury (Pulling Teeth is written about this): 1993/03/13 - Downtown Performance Center, Tucson, Arizona 1993/03/14 - Cosmic Art Space, Albuquerque, New Mexico 1993/03/15 - Fitzgerald's, Houston, Texas 1993/03/19 - The Cameo, San Antonio, Texas 1993/03/24 - Whisky A Go Go, Los Angeles, California 1994/08/15 - Bicentennial Park, Miami, Florida - Cancelled because of Mike's injuries at Woodstock 1994/08/16 - Volusia Country Fairgrounds, DeLand, Florida - Cancelled because of Mike's injuries at Woodstock 1995/10/16 - Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Portland, Oregon - Cancelled because they couldn't get their equipment there in time 1995/12/04 - Boutwell Auditorium, Birmingham, Alabama - cancelled so they could shoot the Brain Stew music video I'm gonna stop there... but that 5 shows thing is bullshit

    @Eric If you post here you can expect people to reply to you to comment on/agree with/disagree with what you post. If you're going to be personally offended because someone posts their own opinion in response to yours then don't post it. I don't want to keep seeing you making things personal for no reason. Not everyone likes the same things as you and not everyone dislikes the same things as you, I don't know how that's such a hard concept to grasp.

    Just read an article on “The Mirror” about this. They referred to the “Green Day Frontman Billie-Joe Saunders https://www.mirror.co.uk/interactives/british-protesters-launch-campaign-green-12453757 this is who they think is the front man for Green Day? Or or maybe the got confused because of this picture of Billie

    I told my dad to try again by contacting the American embassy; he didn't believe too much that it would work, but it did! He got a visa! (and only payed 15 $ instead of me 69 euros... ) He told me he was totally honest with the people at the embassy and told them how he had to fight in Lebanon during the war when he was 18, and after that came to France to study, and then went to the US and finally back to France... with a clean criminal record all the time. Being honest can make things work. I'm so happy!

    Here's an impeccable shirtless Billie squishing cake on Mike's head (and having to stretch to be able to reach). Seriously though, his body is absolutely flawless.😍 I've never seen something so delicious.🤤

    "Dear Steven Seagull, I just received your letter and this is my response. I don't write music for parents, grandparents or eight year olds. I write for myself and I'll say anything I damn well please. That's the difference between you and me. I do what I want... You do what you're told. Obviously, we're not on the same planet, let alone the same ball park. I find people like you offensive and it "helps me" to know you won't be buying any more of our records. Next time, I suggest you do a little research before purchasing such "rubbish" for your little boy. It might save you a few extra bucks. Billie Joe Armstrong and the rest of Green Day P.S. You're right about one thing.... You do have a big mouth."

    You have no idea how crazy obsessed the Tokio Hotel fans are. Let me tell you this: they are ready to do anything just to get the band's attention. When I say «anything», it includes stalking, entering by infraction in their house and hurting other fans (like pushing somebody on the wall in front of the guy who checked the tickets at the entrance of the venue... and I was the one who got pushed. ). They are nuts! Back on topic: Is it normal I don't see a difference between each side of Billie's nose? By the way, I found this gif: LoL What a weird face he did! But I still appreciate the fact that his collar is open so we can see his neck and tattoo.

    Sure They cancelled TWENTY ONE dates in Europe 96 due to exhaustion. 1998/06/21 KWOD’s Really Big Show, Arco Arena, Sacramento, California - Cancelled due to Mike getting attacked by the Third Eye Blind guy the previous night (A LOT of these cancelled shows have been due to Mike’s injuries lol) 1998/07/03 Civic Memorial Auditorium, Fargo, North Dakota - Cancelled due to Tre’s foot infection 1999/02/09-1999/02/22 Green Day dropped out of 5 shows where they were supposed to be opening for the Rolling Stones so they could work on Warning instead And that’s about where my research is stopped at. I only have the first 1,068 shows cataloged so far

    I think if (and that's a big if considering all the times Billie has announced something and it's never happened *cough*Forever now video*cough*) the AI movie does happen, I still want Billie to play St. Jimmy. I never saw the character as a particular age, so I don't think that really matters. And in the musical, I think Billie pulled off the character of St. Jimmy better than anyone else, even though he's not the best of actors. That's because St. Jimmy is essentially a part of Billie - it's a character he made up based on certain aspects of himself. Billie knows how to be St. Jimmy better than anyone because he already is. And I think it'd be incredibly stupid not to cast the real life St. Jimmy in the role when he's right there, willing and able. Also, this discussion is making me remember how proud Billie really is of the AI album. The fact that he wants to be so involved in first the musical and now the movie really says a lot. And then all the clips in Broadway Idiot of him getting emotional when it was so well-recieved. Man, he clearly put everything he had into that record and it really payed off. I'm so proud of him.

    Hey, here's something super relevant to the title of this thread. It's been basically like two years since I've been on here. I didn't listen to Green Day at all or have any association with them besides seeing them on the RevRad tour when they came to Washington. I haven't even listened to that album yet... I just recently started listing to Green Day again and came back here because I was remembering how much I love them... especially Billie. Falling back in love with his voice, his face, all of his habits and quirks. But now I'm scared that he'll drag me back in. I'm starting to feel the intensity of my feelings rise again and it's painful to a certain degree. I've got to live my life, work on my career path, and find a real boy. Billie is real of course, but obviously not in reach or possible (and 19 years older than me and that also feels weird), which is part of why it hurts - the longing. It's like he's some kind of monster that if you look at it, you're just trapped. I take one look or hear his voice and I'm just like "Oh no..." I mean, I'm having trouble even getting to sleep right now because of this and I have to get up early for work tomorrow morning. Anyway, there's a fangirl confession for you guys. Don't know if I said too much or if it makes any sense at all, but if anyone has anything to say about this, feel free. I just had to get it out somewhere with other crazy GD fans.

    I am seriously fangirling over that livestream with the puppet singing. That fucking voice tho. It's making me so emotional. Just hearing his natural voice like that - omg, it is absolute heaven. I can honestly say that his natural voice is the most beautiful sound I have ever heard in my life. I love it so fucking much It's nice to wake up to Billie singing a bit of Elvis. I wish he'd make videos where it's just him singing more often, like that first ever livestream he did. Also, that little breath he takes before he starts singing.

    The more I think about what even a small tour like this involves, the more amazed I am that they’re even doing it. Considering what they stand to make at each small venue of around 500 cap (some combo of tickets, merch and concesions) they then have to cover costs of travel (airfare/bus rental and equipment shipping costs) crew (small but at a minimum they have Bill, Greg and Hans and maybe a couple roadies or security), hotels and food (judging by Kevin’s IG they stay in some pretty nice places), band (gotta make sure Peaches, Kitty and Gary get paid) and any other incidentals like equipment failure or unexpected costs. This is why the venue size has doubled — the expenses are the same if they play 200 cap venues but with half the income it really isn’t feasible. They could cover their costs more easily by charging a bit more and/or playing 1,000-1,500 cap small theatres but they’re not doing that. They want to keep that club feel which is great. Even still, this has to be costing Billie money but he does it because he loves it (and us). We should be super appreciative.

    Yeah, the HLAG comment was almost definitely directed at the official site. GDC didn't exist yet. GDA has a small forum, but I'm fairly confident they didn't know about it considering it wasn't even the biggest Green Day message board at the time. The fun thing about that tweet was that he sent it before they met me. We were sitting upstairs waiting for a Foxboro show when it went out. I had met Bill and Chris Dugan though. They know about the sites, not sure they read the forums. I know they read GDA, or used to, because when we met Tre the first thing he said was "you guys got my equipment page all fucked up" or something along those lines. Which was both embarrassing and still fucking cool.

    Just been watching this classic again on repeat for the past hour or two. That is seriously still one of the greatest Youtube videos ever. I will never get tired of watching him dance. The man has magic hips. Isn't he just the most wonderful dork in the world. And I love how the clips are taken throughout pretty much their entire career, from 1992 to trilogy era. Never change, Billie. Somebody should make an updated version to include RevRad era.

    I've learned to get over Billie's grammar issues ever since I realized he can't spell his own setlists ("Hitchen" a Ride) and says "and I could really care less" in Jesus of Suburbia. I'll let him slide since he's cute.

    I know he worked his ass off to get there but I’m jealous of anyone who has the musical ability to record covers of this quality anytime he wants. He just thinks of a song he loves and then what? Works out the parts (or gets them online somewhere) for guitar, bass and drums goes out to his studio to record the tracks — no problem when you can sing and play every instrument. This sounds like what he does just to amuse himself. It must be so cool to be able to do that. The closest any of us mere mortals get to doing anything like this with our favorite songs is bad karaoke.
