  1. LOVE IS FOR LOSERS LOVE IS FOR LOSERS LOVE IS FOR LOSERS LOVE IS FOR LOSERS LOVE IS FOR LOSERS LOVE IS FOR LOSERS LOVE IS FOR LOSERS Worth the trek to London and day queuing for that alone! Of course the rest was fabulous too, but Love is for Losers!!!!!!

  2. Well that was amazing! Great show, personally I’d have like more Billie, less Courtney but clearly the crowd were very excited when she appeared. Had a nice chat and selfie with Bill as they were finishing up, lovely guy, told us that they were going down like flies when they cancelled the gig in November, only 2 out of whole team left standing and Billie could barely speak, they felt so bad cancelling. Never dreamed I’d get so close to such gorgeousness, the closer I get, the more amazing he gets! ❤️ . Almost walked smack into Adie as she was leaving, they were right in front of us but disappeared really quickly and then a lux looking people carrier appeared so we assumed that was her. Folk were calling out to her and she was smiling at everyone.

  3. I high-fived BJA and Jason when they came off the stage! Plus I gave Courtney a fist-bump! UNREAL!

  4. That was wild. Incredible seeing Billie in such a legendary venue in my own country. Even when we were splayed on the amps and stage, me and everyone around me was smiling and laughing. I'd normally roll my eyes at someone inviting themselves onstage but Maddie was amazing when she got up there! And I will gladly wait in the rain all day just to see Love is for Losers any time. I won't spam it like I did last time, but I will say LOVE IS FOR LOSERS! Again! In my country Billie "forgot" those lyrics again, by the way. Summer of '69 was another highlight. What an anthem. Billie's reaction to an "I can sing Bowie" sign was "yeah I can sing Bowie too" which was hilarious but then he gave the fan a chance to sing anyway. If I had to choose, I think the Garage show was my favourite of the two, but of course I almost loved them both equally. For anyone who cares (not me, I must admit), the songs Courtney Love sang were professionally recorded. The reaction to her here was definitely cooler than the one at the Garage, haha. We were speculating the guest might be Tiffany but no. Also! The staff of the 100 Club deserve praise for being so kind, patient and acknowledging the time fans spent queuing. They took responsibility for the queue when private security tried to move us on, and I think if any drama had gone down they would've handled it. Very rare to get that from venue staff. Whoever gave me the Coverups pin badge because I was at the front of the queue, thanks! On another note, I got my Big Camera in, so photos are coming along with a GDA recap of both shows I'm on the National Express home right now though and I might fall asleep before I can edit and post any. The lighting was also terrible for photography and I was trying not to be too obvious (felt a bit rude), so I don't know how many of my photos are any good but yeah I'll share them anyway.

  6. It was a really fun night, echo what someone else said felt super intimate, a little unpolished in a good way and for me I’ll never get to see Billie/Jason up close like that in such a setting so it was deffo worth going. Setlist I think needs a little more refinement over here and Billie kinda acknowledged it a bit at one point saying “we’re gonna play some more contemporary stuff” before blasting into Last Nite. It really was great fun when they played the big songs everyone knew, some of the punk stuff was lesser known amongst the crowd, and was slightly surprised they didn’t cover Oasis or The Rollling Stones. Some nice surprise in the set though, Ever Fallen in Love & Courtney Love joining was great. Do I need to see it again? Probably not, if it was near me I’d deffo go again though and I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to attend tonight.

  12. I don’t think these results mean the singles should’ve been different. I love their single choices (TADIKM pulled me back in so fast and with such force it’s kind of amazing), I just think fans typically gravitate toward deeper cuts. I’m sure us overplaying the singles as they were dropped also influences our current favorites (although honestly I played Dilemma nonstop and still feel just as strongly about it now, but that’s not the typical single overplay experience lol).

  13. And this is the answer to the question he’s been asked a few times recently, which is basically why does he still work so hard? The answer of course is his huge passion for music, it flows out of him.

  14. Did anyone catch the changed lyrics in Love is for Losers? Billie changed the "we all got our delusions / say goodbye to an old flame" lines. Or maybe I imagined it because I haven't slept for 36 hours (worth it). We were so lucky to get Ever Fallen in Love and Walking Out On Love too And I know they play Fox on the Run at every show but it was fantastic.

  15. The floof is so strong in the photos from The Coverups gig! I need a scientific study of why Billie is extra sexy to me when he plays Coverups gigs. He’s just so like…quietly confident without being his typical frontman “character” and it’s wildly attractive to me lol.

  23. Finished editing my photos. Some of the best: This is a shit photo, but Chris makes it one of the best anyway I posted loads more on the GDA Facebook page and some on Tumblr and Instagram If anyone wants prints, let me know. They're only like 5p each if I print over 500 (and I've got lots of other stuff I want to print) so there's no need to pay me for the prints themselves, just postage.

  25. That review is perfect! I especially love this part: "Though he will be back with Green Day in the Summer to take over Wembley Stadium, tonight, Billie Joe was playing for the 18-year-old he used to be. That kid at the forefront of something incredible, making their way to the UK for the first time to play in Wigan, Preston and Brighton." And the UK has always loved Green Day and always will

  33. I skipped around this interview a bit (this Eddie gentleman seems very nice but is quite a talker), but I listened to most of the back half and it was a great interview. Billie sounds so happy in general and excited about the tour, and indicated there’s some sort of set change between Dookie and AI? Definitely piqued my interest. He also had some lovely stuff to say about staying in a band for so long and remaining friends/resolving conflict (not “keep the fights clean and the sex dirty” for once ). Really enjoyable listen. Billie is such a friendly interviewee.

  37. I think this is still going to seem surreal for a while but I'm starting to have some coherent thoughts now I've slept. People may already know this from videos but not long after they took the stage, the crowd started chanting "Billie! Billie! Billie fucking Joe!" His reply was "my mom didn't name me that." Everyone but Chris Dugan (at least I think that's who's on the drums?) got their own version of the chant by the end of the night. Including "Courtney! Courtney! Courtney fucking Love!" I've never seen The Coverups in the US but from what I've heard, this crowd went crazier than the American ones. Not saying it was the roughest crowd I've been in (far from it haha), but we all got a bit crushed and very (very) sweaty which was a lot more fun than just having clear air behind us. Of course, no-one goes for it like us Brits do We got to see a totally different side of Billie that I don't think even showed at the Longshot gigs. Aside from a few moments when he struck dramatic poses like the rock star he usually is, he seemed like any other slightly nervous frontman of a random cover band. I started writing this post when I felt awake and now I'm getting tired again. I'll probably think of more stuff later. Or not. What a night tho. I thought the same about Courtney Love but saying it seems blasphemous, so I'm glad I'm not alone At least everyone else seemed to love it though. You are so welcome!!! Couldn't have given the ticket to a better gig buddy I was really surprised that there were Americans and Europeans there who'd been to several/most of the Coverups shows in the US. They know what they're getting though. Actually I think you're right. He'll just have to do a UK Longshot tour to remind himself of the lyrics

  38. I really hope you are feeling better soon and it is such a shame you couldn't make it but I want to thank you and your amazing daughter so much for giving me the ticket as i never thought i would get to any kind of club show for Green Day or a side project, you literally made my year. I had such an amazing time! Hope to see you again some time soon x

  39. The floof was truly amazing last night. Totally agree with @stories and songs Billie was just quietly confident last night, didn’t work the crowd, he was just stunning, looked great, sounded fantastic, smiled a lot, seemed really relaxed and happy. 😍😍
