Hollywood, FLA. – Green Day brought played the Hard Rock Live on Thursday, Sept. 22 to a sold-out show of fans of all ages!
Although the band released its major label debut, “Dookie” way back in 1994, there were hordes of fans who weren’t even born when they first hit the charts!
There was no opening act. The PA played Queen’s classic “Bohemian Rhapsody” which had everyone in the mosh pit singing and dancing. Then, Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop” blared from the speakers, instantly changing the euphoric mood to one of snarling defiance.
Then the band’s mascot, a dirty, scruffy bunny-suited person with a Green Day tie ran out onstage to rile up the crowd before the band launched into “American Idiot”!
After that, it was off to the races with lead singer & guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong amping up the crowd while bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tre Cool raced through the rhythms!
Here is the set list for the show:
1. American Idiot
3. Know Your Enemy
4. Boulevard of Broken Dreams
