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

    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. Crowd surfers ranged in age from teenagers to 30-somethings alike during the faster and more angsty songs like “Holiday,” “Bang Bang” and “Letterbomb.” But one of the most punk rock things to happen was during the Dookie classic, “Longview.” As the signature bass line started and drums began to roll in, a fan hopped the stage barrier and made his way on stage. Though the band gave him no mind, there was a cacophony of audience cheer and praise for the 30-something fan. But unfortunately, his stage time was limited. As he tried to rock on, he was met with angry security guards doing their best to round him up. He dipped and dodged for about 30 seconds, eventually being met with a less than playful swift tackle to the ground and was escorted off stage.
