No concert is utterly perfect but if there's a benchmark for today's rock shows look no further than Green Day.
The California punk rock band didn't disappoint and made fans feel they got their money's worth and more with a spectacular three-hour non-stop marathon of favorites at Toronto's Molson Canadian Amphitheatre Wednesday night.
Still touring behind 21st Century Breakdown, Green Day brought out all the stops - and pyrotechnics galore - when not bringing a myriad of fans onstage to dance, sing lead or be saved by the preacher/singer/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong.
Now a six-piece
Now that’s how you throw a party!
Within the first 24 minutes of Green Day’s sold out three-hour marathon at Molson Amphitheatre Wednesday night, singer and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong had:
a) Engaged the audience in several sing-and-clap-a-longs;
b)Run through the crowd with his guitar so the people in Section 300 could get a close look at him;
c) Invited several folks onstage to share the microphone, and
d) Sacrificed a virgin.
And then the show really kicked into gear.

The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards are fast approaching, which means that in only a few weeks you'll be treated to an excellent night of performances and appearances by the likes of Kanye West, Drake, Florence and the Machine and Deadmau5 (who will serve as the house DJ at the show). While people tend to remember the classic performances and the unhinged moments, the coveted Moonman is the reason why people show up and tune in. This year, there are 16 categories wherein some of the biggest music stars in the universe will compete for the coolest trophy in awards shows.

More importantly, Green Day proved itself still capable of doing what punk bands are supposed to do, which is speak for and to youth culture. “Are We the Waiting,’’ “Give Me Novacaine,’’ and “21 Guns’’ made adolescent turmoil feel like Us vs. Them, with a specific focus on the fact that there’s an Us, not just a You.
There was a small but steady trickle of audience members onto the stage all night, one of whom sang “Longview’’ in a faceless green bodysuit and was rewarded with Billie Joe Armstrong’s guitar.
