Opened last night in Miami and played tonight in Orlando. Muy excelente! Very good. They played music from the album as well as some of their older stuff. The opening act, My Chemical Romance, wasn't that great. However, Green Day's set lasted roughly 1hr 45mins to 2hrs. Packed house, energized fanbase and a rockin show that I wont forget anytime soon!

Actually, I have seen several noted above and commented on this board

Wallflowers were horrible opening for Mellencamp a few years ago
DeGraw I have seen 3 times, was good in the smaller forums but only average at the City Market
Johnny Lang was one of the best shows I had seen in my entire life when it comes to strictly talent applied
North Mississippi All Stars I will be seeing for the first time in June
Elvis Costello is good even when you are freezing your butt off in an early winter in September
Ike Turner was creepy because of his Tina lookalike that performed halfway through his show
I will be seeing Robert Randolph in June as well
Ben Kweller I would love to see live sometime.

Green Day is alright, but 32 year old punk rockers still angry at the world just doesn't seem legit to me. It is nice they caught the commerical crowd and make some real change.


BTW - One band I would love to see again and I have never seen discussed is Virginia Coalition. They were a blast in the Beaumont

Maybe not, but you can see them all in one place in less than 2 weeks.

I seem to remember Tesla being talked about on this BB at least a few times.

My wife and I were talking about past/present/future one-hit-wonder bands...

I had to admit, that even thought I had and loved Green Day's 1st mainstream album (and had pirated copies of their two prior albums)... I had to admit that I was shocked to see them still making meaningful, wildly-popular albums today.

I thought they had 1-hit-wonder written all over them.

I was wrong.

Bob Dole's point (apparently lost) was that not a single person replied to the Memphis in May/Beale St. Music Festival topic.

The Wallflowers, Jack Johnson, Ozomatli, Switchfoot, Bowling for Soup, Seether, American Hi-Fi, The Killers, Los Lonely Boys, Collective Soul, Chevelle and Relient K aren't bad.

Especially Collective Soul, one of my all-time favorites and a band that has been moving higher and higher on my list are The Killers. Jack Johnson's new album is pretty good too, picked that up a couple of weeks ago.

It would be nice if that asshole would post a thread about it. Apparently some people don't know how to generate publicity. Too bad...

Maybe because it is in Memphis, and you didn't list all the bands playing in the thread? Of course what do I know, nobody replies to my threads.

Yeah, I checked the lineup just last week. Looks like they've got some excellent bands playing. Very eclectic lineup as well. I'd love to go, but it ain't gonna happen.

I was at the Green Day show last night too. It was pretty good. They played almost all the songs I wanted to hear. I was a little suprised by the number of kids that were there though. I noticed a lot of 10-14 year olds, or maybe I am just getting old...
