As Leeds festival was the final date of the 99 Revolutions tour, it appeas that the ¡Trilogy! era is over. What are your thoughts on this era in retrospect?
I find it a real shame that the ¡Trilogy! promotion was sabotaged by Billie Joe's rehab, but to me, 2 of the 3 albums themselves were incredible. ¡Uno! is their worst album by a landslide in my opinion, however Stay The Night remains one of my favourite Green Day songs of all time. ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! were awesome, 2 of my all time favourite Green Day albums. I think they both had a really strong set of songs.
As for the tour, I think set-list wise and performance wise it was amazing. Less dates, bigger venues, every gig was a spectacle and the "uniform" was awesome, I loved Billie Joe's jumper and Tre's bass drum art. I saw them at Emirates Stadium and it was absolutely awesome, the ¡Trilogy! songs worked so well in the set and provided some of my favourite moments of the show.
Overall, I look back on the ¡Trilogy! as good times in my personal life, so the songs will always make me smile for the good times I've had. I feel nothing but happiness for the ¡Trilogy! and will treasure this era of Green Day. It may have been bad times for Green Day initially, but for the fans it was incredible to have THREE new albums that were mostly great. ¡Trilogy! era will be remembered fondly by me.
Let me know your thoughts on the era and let's look back.
