Guys, you'll never believe it, but Billie Joe is staying at my hotel! He walked into the bar while I was having a drink, and after I was sure I wasn't drunk and it was really him, I walked over and said hi. We talked for a few minutes about life in the road. He said he was kind of disappointed in the audience today. Apparently he felt like you guys were really quiet and not into it. He said he had some old rarities on the setlist, but they had to audible back to the hits to keep the audience interested, and that they seemed like a "typical festival crowd" more than a bunch of Green Day fans. I told him about my getting arrested, and he laughed and said that I was "fucking hardcore about this shit". He offered to autograph my court summons, but I left it in my room I didn't ask for a picture because it didn't feel right to do so. He did insist on paying for my drink, though. Said it was the least he could do after I got myself arrested trying to see him play. I gotta say, all the stories about Billie Joe being the nicest guy ever are true. So in conclusion, Billie Joe is awesome, you guys are a shit audience, and I'm hardcore. Totally worth the trip.
Guys, this is bullshit. I'm not allowed on Kentucky Speedway property (or any Speedway Motorsports, Inc. property) for the "indefinite future". I'm just gonna change my flights and go home tonight. Fuck this festival.
So I just bailed out of jail. That security guard is really committed to his act. I mean, come on, I was the only person in line. His friends were still going to get barrier. I can't believe he'd call the cops and lie to them like that just to make sure they were at the front. What a dick. I hope someone shows this post to Green Day so they go to NiFi management and alert them to the behavior of the event staff. This is unacceptable. And to make it even worse, I've been trespassed from Kentucky Speedway! I can never go back there, and they won't give me a refund. I might just go home. This is bullshit, guys.
Wait, I thought Billie Joe was already hanging out with Carling... There's still no one in line but me, and that security guard keeps telling me to leave. He says that Green Day's not coming, and he's gonna call the cops if I don't. I told him to try it. They'd side with me as soon as I tell them about his plan to get his friends on the barrier.
