my first Green Day concert was infact last october in Birmingham UK.
it was just totally AMAZING!!!
the support act [prima donna] "tried" getting the crowd going, which was highly ammusing LOL

but to be honest, i burst into tears when they played time of your life! billies voice is beautiful live! ^_^

after walking about a mile after the show to where my dad parked, i collapsed into his car and dreamed about the show <3

certainly the BEST night of my entire life! <3
although; i have a feeling wembly shall be too! ^___________^

It was so fucking awesome. Very Happy In the beginning Billie got a Swedish flag with the text "Sweden ♥ Green Day" on from the audience in the moshpit and he kinda wore it on his back, screaming "SUPER-SCHWEEEEDEEEEN!!!!" Very Happy Then when it was time to sing Boulevard of Broken Dreams he let us sing it, and he bowed for us and told us we were the best crowd to sing it ever. Very Happy Also, Tré sang Shout in drag...TWICE. Roxanne When it was time for the "HEEEYOOOH" thing, we also had the longest "HEEEYOOOH" ever. Very Happy It was the best possible Birthday present ever.

My first concert was when I was 14. He was looking for a kid o bring on stage & I was in the front. He came over to my side and I swear A LOT of the adults standing around me was pointing at me! I think he was about to pick me cuz he looked RIGHT at me ((I swear there was a moment for a second)), but he picked some 12 year old in the back....x( I was sooo mad! And not only that, but I blacked out and missed almost half the concert!

hmmm... going to my first GD concert on the 18th of August. I'm like super confused... what's the difference between lawn tickets and general admission tickets? my tickets (i could only get lawn tickets Sad ) say general admission lawn. that does NOT make any sense to me. Also, how early should i get there?

Nashville, TN 31.7.09

I was 17. I'd been waiting 5 years for them to go back on tour, because my mom thought I was too young for Green Day 2005.

It was really cramped, of course. This one girl in front of me insisted on standing all up in my space when she had an extra foot of space in front of her. Furthermore, she wasn't rocking out. Just standing there. Then this couple who were trying to get closer to the stage just pushed me and my boyfriend apart, separating us. I got pissed, reached through them and grabbed him, yanked him through them, causing Josh to accidentally elbow the woman in the face XD

Then I went to Wembley for my second concert...and made the mistake of getting seats instead of standing...lol.

there are two different General Admission tickets-Lawn, and I think the other one might say something like pit, if it's at a Verizon venue. If you wanted to get close to the stage, you should have gone with the other one.

Here's the layout of your venue. You see, the lawn is in the very back. It's GA as well, but you won't be close to the stage.

Haha like 20 minutes before Green Day played, but we had seats. We missed the opening acts, which is somewhat of a tragedy since Joan Jett was opening. Even though I didn't really know her all that well, I still wanted to see her.

Standing, I would at least get there an hour before. The earlier, the better. The only thing that really sucks about the Verizon venues is that the parking doesn't open until an hour before the doors, so if you wanna be there super early then I would say use public transport or be dropped off.

I was 17, it was at Birmingham LG arena and it was of course, amazing. I went with my boyfriend and he loved it too. His fave. band are Iron Maiden and his exact words after the gig where 'wow... and i thought Iron Maiden were good...' that made me laugh!

When they came on I think I froze for the first two songs... just stood there with my gob open haha!

I was 14, it was at the SECC centre in my hometown of Glasgow, I LOVED it.
Although the man sat behind us told me and my friends to sit down during 21st Century Breakdown, which meant I couldnt do any of my "brilliant" dance moves... Hmmph,
However it was amazing nonetheless XD
