  • For the encore, Billie Joe came back alone onstage with his electric guitar and did another new one, "Amy" (overheard in the audience: "I wish my name was Amy!"). The band rejoined Billie Joe onstage for an Ozzy cover, "Goodbye to Romance," a real arena singalong, complete with lighters in the air. As Billie Joe crooned the last few lines, "I said goodbye to romance/Goodbye to friends, I tell you/Goodbye to all the past/I guess that we`ll meet/We`ll meet in the end," it really felt like the end of the night. But when the final schmaltzy notes faded away . . . the band surged right into the all too familiar intro of "Welcome to Paradise." And if the crowd wasn't already stoked enough--Green Day, Costa Mesa, Tiki Bar, Billie Joe's water on their clothing--the audience was renewed with those eight familiar, tried-and-trues: "Burnout," "Murder City," "J.A.R.," "Only of You," "Hitchin' a Ride," "St. Jimmy," "Minority."
