British Summer Time at Hyde Park: Green Day rock second night of huge music event

on July 2, 2017 - 3:39pm

Green Day at British Summer Time in Hyde Park was officially epic.

Playing to a sold out crowd on Saturday night (July 1), the band - lead singer and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong in particular - had thousands of people as putty in their hands for almost two-and-a-half hours.

Billie Joe asked everyone to put politics out of their minds and just come together and have fun for one night.

But he did call for: "No racism, no sexism, no homophobia, and no Donald Trump!"

His occasional calls to arms against politicians seemed to bring people together, as the huge crowd roared in agreement.

Green Day's Rock And Relevance

on June 29, 2017 - 9:18pm

The subtext of ‘American Idiot’ is more relevant than ever and Green Day still know how to prove it.

If Green Day had been at Glastonbury last weekend they would have been among the crowds at the Pyramid Stage chanting ‘Oh Jeremy Corbyn’ when the Labour leader received a response worthy of one of the festival’s headliners. Green Day are a band whose music and politics would resonate across Worthy Farm far more than, dare I say, Radiohead for example.
