‘GREENDAY – touches down in Melbourne for the time of their life’ #exclusive 4/5/17





The boys from Greenday landed at Melbourne Airport this morning at 1.15am following their Wednesday night concert in Adelaide.

Greenday stepped off their Gulfstream IV private jet with entourage in tow and into their chauffeured Kia vans headed for their city hotel for shows this weekend.

The boys who made Seinfeld’s finale ‘Time of Their Life’ famous will play Rod Laver Arena this Friday & Saturday nights.

But it was one lucky Adelaide fan who walked away with their #15Minutesoffame with Greenday’s Billy Joe Armstrong handing the concert goer his guitar as a momento…

Green Day – Boulevard of Broken Dreams [(Album Version)]





Green Day Boulevard of Broken Dreams

lyrics:

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don’t know where it goes
But it’s home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
and I’m the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a…

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart’s the only thing that’s beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
‘Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah,
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I’m walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line
Of the edge and where I walk alone

Read between the lines
What’s fucked up and everything’s alright
Check my vital signs
To know I’m still alive and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a…

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart’s the only thing that’s beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
‘Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah
Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I walk alone
I walk a…

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I’m the only one and I walk a…

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart’s the only thing that’s beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
‘Til then I walk alone…

Green Day – American Idiot – Live in Oakland





Green Day – American Idiot – Oakland, Live, 8-5-17, 1st row, Oakland Coliseum. Billie Joe: You! OK, get your ass up here! 😛

Other Tidbits:

Hometown show! For ‘Know Your Enemy’, ‘Longview’ and ‘Knowledge’, Billie invited a fan to sing and play the guitar with them. 2 of the fans picked out were standing adjacent to me, lol. Many of the fans recognized each other from previous Green Day concerts. In fact, the kid who played ‘Longview and J.A.R.’ last year on the guitar and who was featured in the ‘Spotify Landmark Series: Green Day The Early Years’, was next to me in the VIP line.

For the VIPs, we received, among other things, the opportunity to watch the band sound check from the stadium’s suites. Two of the songs sound checked were ‘Homecoming’ and ‘Too Dumb to Die’, but neither was performed. Like Oakland Arena, they have an early curfew at ~11:00, so perhaps there was not enough time before the scheduled fireworks.

Billie Joe (during ‘Letterbomb’): OMG! We’re home! This is family! This is friendship! This is about home… Tonight, every song is about home! The East Bay! The entire Bay Area man!

To further celebrate the homecoming, the band held a Pop-Up Shop at 1-2-3-4 Go! Records in Oakland for 2 days, complete with exclusive merchandise, giveaways, free Oakland Coffee, and appearances by the Drunk Bunny and the A’s Mascot, Stomper. Upon opening, there was a ~30-fan long line out the door. The first 250 Idiot Nation Fan Club members got 2 free tries on the carnival claw machine to win miniature stuffed pink or green drunk bunnies. Only 25 of the green bunnies were made and they were all in the machine. I aimed the claw to try to get one of those, but it didn’t hold on 😛 I bought a pair of posters and they gave me a free Oakland Coffee tote bag, which was nice.

The opener was Catfish and the Bottlemen, who was actually scheduled to perform last year with Green Day at Oakland Arena for Not So Silent Night 2016, but they had to cancel. Many were looking forward to seeing them as well.
