Green Day – American Idiot – U.C. Berkeley, Live, 4-16-13, front row, Greek Theatre. Billie Joe: “It’s such a trip to think that all of these songs are basically from here… or about here, I should say.”
Over 60 fans camped out overnight so that they would get a spot in the 1st row center. This actually worked out well for the many fans who came up from L.A. because that way they didn’t have to spring for a hotel room! 😛
The fans went wild when Green Day began this song and at 3:33, a crowd surfer goes right over us. 😛
Billie Joe frequently put on many of the items that the fans threw on stage, items such as hats, feather boas, sunglasses, and a 924 Gilman bumper sticker, which Billie then attached to his guitar during ‘2000 Light Years Away’. Green Day got its start at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California.
Several of Billie Joe’s relatives also came to this concert. One person in my group recognized and then met a few of Billie’s brothers and sisters while we were waiting in line, and his nephew was also there, and he was later brought up on stage during the set’s second song.
After the 10th song, Billie Joe took a pair of requests from the audience, saying that that “we’ll play anything you want.” ‘Geek Stink Breath’ and ‘2000 Light Years Away’ were the winners.
Because the Greek Theatre has a 10pm curfew, Green Day started much earlier than usual at 7:30, when it was still light out.
