I was so happy that I made it into this show! The line to get in started around 1:30 PM, and was the longest line I have seen at the Fonda. No one seemed to have tickets. If they did, they weren’t willing to sell them. I waited around for about 2 hours, and was fortunate enough to buy 1 of 3 tickets that were available.

I ended up missing the first 5 songs, but was graced with a 2 hour set.

It has been awhile since I have seen Green Day, and oh, how I have missed them. They bring such an energy to the stage. They started their set by playing songs from their new album “21st Century Breakdown.”

They left stage for a few minutes, and then returned to rock out for another hour and fifteen minutes that featured the classic Green Day songs.

I really dug how they pulled a few fans up on stage to jam out with them, and took song request from the audience. They did a fantastic mash-up of King for a Day and Shout that got the whole place jumping. At one point in time, I thought the band had left the stage, but it turned out that they were actually crouching down and were blocked by the people in front of me. Boy, was I surprised when they all popped back up.

The one thing from this show that was a bit of a let down was the crowd. They didn’t seem to be in the rocking mood that I expected them to be in; probably because they all waited in line for close to 4 hours to get in. I’m looking forward to their 2009 summer arena tour. I think the fans at those shows are going to go ape shit.

I scored the set list but am not sure how valid the second half is, as they took a lot of requests and were just all around rocking out.

After the show I was lucky enough to roll in to the after party and get this pic with Tre Cool.
