  2. I have Mega Evolved into Mega Fangirl over Billie taking my flag. That thing has been with me since the Paris show in 2010. It's been to all kinds of places but its most exciting adventure was definitely Costa Rica where it made it onto TV. Framing it has flag shagger vibes, but I think I'm going to have to retire it and frame it with photos some of Billie holding it.

  4. As usual, I wasn't supposed to be here. I was offered a free ticket and couldn't resist. I arrived later than I meant to, but the McFly fans in front of me kindly let me in after McFly finished, so I had an amazing spot in Mike's corner. The band were obviously on fire (when aren't they?). An incredibly passionate performance. Billie got emotional several times. They played the singles from Dookie and all of American Idiot except Extraordinary Girl. Very different to the Lyon show - it felt less scripted and Billie interacted with the crowd more. That said, I couldn't choose a favourite of the two. They were just different. Lyon miiiight have the edge because the atmosphere was amazing but I might change my mind tomorrow. Also, whilst Billie interacted more, Mike hardly interacted at all, in contrast to Lyon where he must have smiled and pointed at 50+ people. In Holiday, Billie took my England flag, played with it for a while then gave it back. What a lovely bloke. 💖 He kept saying England does it best and I can't disagree. He gave his old speech in Letterbomb - "this isn't a party, it's a celebration!" Homecoming was the highlight. Absolutely incredible. I didn't like Bobby Sox when I first heard it, but I've totally warmed to it after hearing it in Lyon then here. I love it now! And I will never ever complain about hearing One Eyed Bastard. What a banger. We were all chanting "one more song" for so long and so loudly I thought they might actually do it, but of course they didn't. It was lovely seeing everyone so enthusiastic though. I'm really not a show counter - I don't generally give a shit - but I realised from setlist.fm that this would be my 50th show and I admit I got a bit sentimental about that. It was definitely a worthy 50th show. I love Green Day.

  5. They make arguably their best album since 2009 and decide to release THIS song as a single? What an odd choice 😅.

  7. Making a thread to link to the GDA article. https://www.greendayauthority.com/news/6167/ "You're going to have the most turbo-charged, chrome-plated, plush-lined, high-gloss, super-speed customized time of your life. The Corvette Summer music video comes out next Tuesday, July 23rd at 10am PT. Starring Billie Joe Armstrong, Tre Cool, Mike Dirnt, Mark Hamill, Hannibal Buress, and a whole lot more."

  8. Did another monthly update. Songs that they played live on tour are holding up in numbers or have gone up. Spotify position is the song's position within Green Day's catalog.

  9. Saviors is still such a great album. Often when I can't decide which album I want to listen to, I simply start Saviors because it's just fun to hear from start to end 😌

  13. Any time they got asked if they would continue doing low ticket prices at the time they always said they would do what made sense for each tour and that they weren't making a statement etc though. They never claimed it as a "belief" and wouldn't allow interviewers to put them in the category of bands taking a stand against high ticket prices. Also I don't think you'll find another band at their level that has much lower tickets prices than them now, they could charge a lot more. And the way bands make money has changed, they make nothing from record sales now and touring is how they make it. I do wish tickets could still just all be the same price throughout venues but now and 1994 are two different situations as far as how the economy of bands works so you can't really compare the two. Green Day still have decently low ticket prices for a band of their stature.

  14. Solid show. My favourite of this tour is still Glasgow, but then I think stadium shows are generally speaking not my thing, also just sonically. That said, I believe Billie really likes London and it showed all throughout the night. He was grinning like a kid at Christmas . I suppose it’s refreshing as a part-Brit to hear a positive outsider’s perspective on the UK and London, and to be fair not all is rotten in this country Anyhow, it seems he’d been looking forward to this show and kept some energy reserves for this night, I mean he and the band really gave it their all. And I could also really sense his gratitude for the fact that after more than 30 years of touring and 14 albums later, and even 20 years after their last major commercial break, they still managed to fill Wembley in full (sold out). You could hear the gratitude in his voice and also genuine concern for people in the moshpit too. Great night.

  19. I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't listen to all of Saviours until after I'd seen them live again the other week, but oh my god, it is such a good album. An instant classic, I think, up there with Dookie and American Idiot in terms of their best albums. Really really awesome.

  20. The most adorkable thing at the Wembley show was when Billie told a crowd of 80,000 people "knock knock" while having no punchline to say TWICE . He was very sweetly stopping the show to make sure security helped a fan at the time so he got away with it.

  21. I can’t believe the European leg of the tour is already over. It was great seeing them live again, even if it was only one show. It was a great tour and it seemed like there were only positive vibes. I really hope there’ll be another leg or a new European tour soon. I don’t want to wait for multiple years. It was also good to see that they’re apparently still able to sell out these massive venues. Numbers don’t matter but it’s still nice to know that so many people genuinely care for the band and their music.

  23. I can’t believe the European leg is over just like that! Watching clips from these shows has been incredible and has me even more excited about my upcoming US date. I think this is one of the best setlists they’ve had in a long time and they just seem like they’re having so much fun on tour. Great energy all around.

  27. Plus a little snippet of Free Falling earlier in the night! Great night, I was about 5/6 people back from the end of the catwalk. The crowd around me were good fun! I'd have to echo the above. Billie sounds unbelievably good at the moment 😍 the Dookie part does feel a little rushed, but once they get through that and into the mixed part before AI, it feels more relaxed. I've gotta say the new songs sound amazing live, Look Ma, OEB and Bobby Sox as a closer work so well live! I do wish there was a bit of variety to the set lists but oh well. The only song that's missing from the traditional GD set list for me is Hitchin a Ride. I didn't think I'd like this two full albums approach, but I think I could listen to AI in full at every show ❤️ On to Wembley 😎

  28. Billie is looking completely gorgeous, we are getting flashes of hip and bellie and in Glasgow he had a couple of shirt buttons come undone. I’m not looking for any photos of that though, no sir, not hoping there are good, clear photos out there 😙

  30. Loving the tour so far - such a shame that I don't get to see them this year (fingers crossed for a 2nd leg) + Homecoming sounds and seems to be the highlight of the show (please do not remove this song from future setlists, ever) + Lot's of sing along with the crowds, but less interaction between songs + Dilemma and Minority beeing played a step down from eb tuning, my guess is that they do this to spare BJ's voice (you can clearly tell that the high notes is a problem for him sometimes (OEB, Homecoming, Look Ma etc) + Bobby Sox is fucking amazing as a closing song - I think that BJ nails the high notes on this one, better than in the beginning after the release of the album - Please drop KYE

  31. I think I might agree. The only downside is Billie has less interaction with the crowd, he has a lot to get through. I thought it might feel like they were just ticking boxes but though they blast through each song I got no sense of them just going through the motions, they are clearly getting a kick out of playing both records and new stuff.

  33. Damn, I need a sign that says can’t play or sing but gives great hugs. 😂😂 My god, was Glasgow even better than Manchester!! Totally awesome show, as in jaw droppingly good. I think Billie choked a bit in WMUWSE. How the hell did people get golden circle, or was it full VIP? I never saw golden circle for sale! Had a great view straight on if further away (annoyingly the park slopes slightly but enough when you’re 5’). The stage settings, light show and pyro are just fantastic and Billie sounded amazing, I thought they were a little louder than in Manchester and Mike’s bass was higher in the mix at times. Sounded great. It rained a bit and I thought we were going to get soaked but it went off and got quite nice for a while, got quite chilly around 10, you can Billie’s nose is pink at the later stages ❤️ I am so tired of sloppy “journalism”! “First time in years” only 2 years, this sounds nearer 20! 🤬

  34. I noticed that too, his hair has reached a level of fluffiness during this era that is just surreal. I had never been a fan of blonde Billie, I must confess, but after this tour, I absolutely LOVE it. It even feels kind of wrong looking at old pictures of him with black hair, LOL.

  38. This. Just as the front row shouldn't be exclusive to people who can afford £250 for a ticket, it shouldn't be exclusive to the able-bodied or those with time to queue either. It's unfortunate that we live in a world where disability is so expensive, but we do and it's not going to change. They really do need to sell less VIP tickets though, because as it is now (300+ standing) the tickets are of no use to disabled people. The able-bodied people just run past them and the disabled are lucky if they can even get spots in front of the screens. I have heard that some venues forced people to walk, but they didn't at any of my shows (well, they tried and failed in Glasgow), so it's an expensive gamble. If they absolutely refuse to sell less, there is an option that would be fair to disabled people – let them get headstarts based on their specific needs. I know that would upset the able-bodied VIPs, but there wouldn't be that many disabled people with those specific needs, and given that they're buying these tickets because they actually need them, I think it's fair. There needs to be more transparency too. For £250 (let alone £475!) people deserve to know exactly what they're buying. If they sell less, make everything crystal clear and – obviously – deliver the things they promise, I won't actually have any issue with it. It will hardly impact non-VIPs if they only sell 100. There were 200 at every American RevRad show and they never stopped me getting good spots by queuing. I don't think it would be a guaranteed crowd-killer either. It might if you're unlucky, but at the British shows, I can vouch for the first 15+ VIPs in the queues being devoted fans I've known for ages (except that weird woman at Wembley), and the VIPs I didn't know around me were going mad. I wasn't VIP in Lyon, but every VIP I met there was lovely and devoted too. A few told me they bought the tickets because it was their hometown or only show. Of course, there are options to make everyone happy that don't involve VIP tickets at all: let disabled people in early, have a fan club lottery to guarantee front row spots for a few people who can't queue for whatever reason, and ensure fan safety regardless of what tickets they bought. A friend told me that Take That's staff walk people in single file and if they try to run or push, they're sent straight to the back. I've also heard that Yungblud and My Chemical Romance force people to walk in pairs in split sections. Even Taylor Swift at Wembley was apparently safer than Green Day. Every performer should be doing this whether they sell VIP tickets or not. I'm sure doing these things instead of VIPs is too much to ask, though

  42. I was singing along to OEB! I don't know if I might have mentioned it in one or two posts, but I LOVE this song!🤣😉 I did kind of notice that the crowd seemed a bit quieter during the new songs, which is a shame. One of the things that made my day was being gifted a GD bracelet by a very kind stranger! Did anybody else meet the lovely lady who was giving away beaded bracelets? She asked if I'd like one, so I asked her if she had any OEB ones and she said she had bada BING bada BING bada boom, so I knew I needed that one! How fabulous is this?!🥰

  43. Totally agree with you, I really like how Coley has fitted in, Jason has been too much for me for some time now. I don’t particularly like his sax solos but the organ sound does not fit to me and he overdoes it. I think you could feel the band’s love and gratitude this whole tour so far. That footage of Billie sitting in the stage at the end is just beautiful. 💚🥹💚

  44. It was a totally awesome show! Amazing energy start to finish and Billie was really on form. Seeing Dookie played in full was amazing, but getting American Idiot in full was definitely the highlight for me. It was great to hear some of those songs live for the first time (for me). I was lucky and got barrier a few people back from the catwalk, and had an awesome view. Arrived at about 12 noon to join the queue. My highlights were St Jimmy (Billie's energy during that is incredible), and Homecoming when the whole crowd were singing "we're coming home again", it was a real magical, spine-tingling moment that I will always remember. Also Mike and Tre running on at the end during good riddance to goof around with Billie was so cute. It's so great to see how much they are just loving being on stage and being together. You really feel the love and deep friendship between them. Billie said "we're gonna keep doing this forever", I really fucking hope they keep putting out music and touring, these guys are still just right at the top. It was my first Green Day show for 11 years, so pretty special for me. I felt super emotional during the show and also an overwhelming gratitude that these guys are still there for us. IMO GD shows are as much a chance for me to show them my love and gratitude for their work as for them to put on a show for us. Just love these guys so much, they are so unique and special ❤️
