Do they have to be in the US? If not, what about Wembley Stadium and the Milton Keynes Bowl?

This is a great idea http://www.greendaycommunity.org/Forum/p...


Well, this isn't a Great Places GD Played thread, it's a landmark thread. Maybe someone could make a separate list for "big" concerts?

I have a whole 'Green Day Landmarks' tour thing written up, if anyone wants me to post it.
needs a little bit of updating, but still.


Also, it's probably not the best of ideas to put up people's private adresses, seeing as there are some crazies out there that may just use that sort of info in a bad way =/

That's pretty cool and all, but you really should take down the private address. Like Aska said, there's a lot of people who will decide to actually go there and spread that address around etc...

i postd a thread about this and no one replied.. thanks!

I know there are a lot of people that like to/would like to go to all of the points of interest that have to do with Green Day's history, so I made a map pointing out everything I could think of. I have been to most of these places, the rest are places that the band has mentioned in songs, interviews, album credits, etc. I'm sure I'm missing some locations, so If anyone has anything they feel should be added, let me know.

I thought about Tight Wad Hill, but I don't know for sure if it's the one by UC Berkeley or one by their high school. Too many conflicting stories. If anyone knows for sure let me know.

The Armstrong home's address can be found in the booklet for "The Big One" compilation that features "I Want To Be Alone". I included it since it is widely available to the public. I have no idea if any members of the Armstrong family still live there.

I will add the other area people have suggested hopefully sometime today. If anyone knows whether tight wad hill is at UC Berkley, Pinole Valley HS, or John Swett HS please let me know.

It's not widely available to the public, most people have never heard of that compilation. That came out 20 years ago, I don't think they really had any fans that would actually stalk those places out back then, it'd have been used for fanmail. Sure, you have no idea if any of the Armstrongs lives there and if they do, it'd be his 80-whatever year old mom. Lets not take the risk of some creepy fuckers showing up outside her house, yeah? :)

Ok, I'll remove it then.

Also, if anyone knows the address/exact location of the Ashby house, that would be great.

If anyone who happens to be in New York wants to visit the site of Woodstock '94, it should be noted that it didn't actually take place in Woodstock, NY. It was held in Saugerties, NY which is only about 15-20 minutes away from Woodstock. :) /local

People live in the Ashby house, it's also a private address.

I didn't include an address, but a Google search with "green day ashby house" will give it to you. I included it since no member of Green Day lives there and more people know about it as opposed to the Armstrong house. Should there be a "no private residences" rule? I don't care either way. I'll remove it for now.

In other map news, The Ruby Room has been found and added to the map. However, I cannot find the exact location of Fiat Music as the directions put the placemark in the middle of the street, and I can't identify the building in street view mode. If anyone can help, please do. I also adjusted the placemark at Christie Rd. to show the area where people hang out.

I feel like no private addresses should be a thing. It's kinda awkward. I would just settle for Ashby Street, and if someone wanted to drive down and see- so be it, but no actual address.

As far as Fiat Music, I can't give you the exact address because I don't know it, but I do know it's in a plaza in Pinole Valley. There's also a Walgreens, and a Subway, and stuff in said plaza. IT's really nearby the high school.

Wait! You can see a number in the picture I took of the place. I would try searching that number and Pinole, maybe it'll give you something... not in the street.
