Green Day ROCKS the Amway

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 03:15

PX00236_9[1]In one of the best concert experiences I have ever had, rock band Green Day played an amazing show Wednesday night at Orlando’s Amway Arena. Most of the set list came from the band’s latest release 21st Century Breakdown and their platinum-smash hit album American Idiot. But, performances of their earlier hits (“Basket Case,” “Minority,” and “Good-Riddance–Time of Your Life”) also punctuated the two-and-a-half hour fully energized concert in-front of a loud and appreciative crowd. The band even pulled several people from the audience on-stage to participate. Keeping their faith (or, lack thereof), lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong “saved” one young concert-goer during the performance of “Before the Lobotomy” from 21st Century Breakdown. And a young guitarist helped the band during “Jesus of Suburbia” while 3 lucky singers entertained the crowd with their renditions of “Longview.” I have wanted to see Green Day live for a very long time. I am grateful I got to see perhapsĀ the most talentedĀ band in music perform such a spectacular show! Green Day continues to show their high-level of musical talent and ability while maintaining their extreme popularity and amazingly unique rock sound which both characterizes them and places them high above any other band in rock music today.
