8-year-old guitarist brings house down at Green Day concert

on August 19, 2017 - 6:00pm

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WTHR) - Green Day rocked Klipsch Music Center Wednesday night, but it was an 8-year-old boy who stole the show.

JC O'Rourke says he took his sons Liam and Leo to the concert and after a trip to the restroom, paused for a closer look at the stage. After a chat with security, guards and stage crew invited Liam to come closer for a quick glance from next to the stage.

As they started to return to their seats, a couple who was on their way out offered their tickets to the father and son.

From there, they were in the right place at the right time when Green Day frontman Billie

Green Day fires on all cylinders in politically charged show at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre

A double dose of Green Day was just the right amount for St. Louis fans. The punk band brought its second tour in less than a year to town for a blood-rushing show Monday night at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre.

Green Day played a comparatively intimate show in October at the Pageant. The instantly sold-out club date coincided with the release of its “Revolution Radio” album.

Several months later, after fans had a chance to get acquainted with the new music, the band was back, this time in front of 13,500 fans for its summer tour, larger in every way.

If there was an overarching message, it

Green Day turns arena into punk club with fun, unifying show

on August 13, 2017 - 6:25pm

OMAHA -- “This is a rock ‘n’ roll show, not an (expletive) tea party,” Billie Joe Armstrong exclaimed after Green Day tore through “Know Your Enemy” Saturday, sending the CenturyLink Center crowd into a frenzy.

More than two hours and 23 songs later, Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, Tre Cool and three backing musicians had delivered just what Armstrong promised -- and something that no other band today could do -- a full-on punk rock show that made an arena feel like a club.

Kicking off with seven frenetic songs, with Armstrong in constant motion, constantly urging “Let’s go crazy,” Green Day

Review – Fans Got Tackled and Subarus Were Smashed at Green Day

on August 12, 2017 - 1:01pm

As soon as stormy clouds began to roll in is when Green Day’s two-hour-long set started. The trio kicked off the show with “Know Your Enemy,” which turned into a wet, head banging dance party. Pyrotechnics boomed on stage while the audience got drenched by the recurring August rain, but the rain didn’t hinder any of the excitement. If anything, the rain was a catalyst that propelled everyone into a carefree attitude that remained throughout the show.

This ‘don’t give a shit’ attitude was met by the audience and band interactions throughout the night.
