    Well, that was a lie. Green Day started Bohemian Rhapsody at 830.

    What an awesome show. They played about 2 hours 10 minutes. Added Boulevard and Still Breathing to the setlist tonight.

    I wish Insomniac wasn't ignored so often. So many great songs on there that would be great live.

    Of course. Last night's show was probably one of the loudest in terms of crowd singing and chanting. It kind of felt like watching the World Cup final live with 2,000 screaming fans. You're in for a treat tonight!

    so last night was my first time seeing green day and as someone who really only knows the bigger songs I thought they put on an amazing show. Pulling kids up to sing with them and stage dive and stuff was so cool, the crowd was so loud and everyone seemed to be having a great time. For such a long set I really didn't feel bored at all which was cool although i couldve done without all the woah-oh chants billy kept starting between songs. They sounded really good and all the songs I did know sounded really tight live. Another small thing I didn't quite understand was the lack of production. I realize club tours won't get stadium production and green day may not be the type of band to go overboard with it, but they only did regular white lights for the whole set, nothing special at all. No colored lights or any light rigs that weren't the venues own house lights. Obviously lights dont make the show but a little production wouldve been cool. I was VERY pleased that starland wasnt overpacked. My girlfriend and I stood very comfortably towards the back corner of the floor and had a decent view with little to no problems with the crowd the whole night.

    also, side note, dog party was probably one of the worst bands ive ever listened to. jesus christ their set was borderline embarrasing.

    I found it odd that they didn't have at least a backdrop but then again, they could do whatever they want. I guess they just stripped everything down and just played. Also, I walked in during the last song of Dog Party and that was a painful 30 seconds so I couldn't imagine what the whole set was like.

    I watched all of Dog Party's set. it was pretty brutal...

    i would say one of the few negatvies of the show was that they really didnt do ANY personalization rock talk. I know it's cheezy but i wanted ONE SENTENCE that said "man, it's so crazy we're doing a small venue like this...we almost never do this...back to our roots thing". It's a nitpick.

    yeah it wouldve been nice for them to recognize that but they did talk about jersey gardens which was an even smaller place so i think they were trying to ignore that theyre a stadium band and just act like they belong at starland. i also enjoyed him talking about how he still uses the guitar his mom bought him from her tip money from being a waitress.

    Am I the only one actively looking forward to Dog Party? Their new record is really great for what it is (sugary, Lookout! records sounding pop-punk/garage rock).

    they're not as bad as people are making them out to be. they're just a one trick pony that got kinda stale after the first 2 songs. two-piece girl band with a lot of 'la la la's'.

    Yeah, I wasn't expecting them to blow me away with their live show... But I dig the record. If nothing else I can enjoy singing along haha.

    Billie Joe changed the lyrics from "Pulverize the Eiffel Towers" to "pulverize the Trump Towers" during Holiday

    I was so glad they didn't oversell. I was on the floor and while of course it was rough, it was nothing like when I saw blink-182 there a few years ago. I couldn't even breath during that show it was so packed. And I thought Dog Party was okay. Some songs were good some not so good.
