GREEN DAY - BBC Maida Vale Studio, London 2004

Who knew? Green Day was so bloody phenomenal at my beloved Forum on Tuesday night that I can't resist posting another boot from the boys.

No kidding, folks: simply put, this was the show of the year. It kills me that they didn't tape it for the ages; so far there's not even a single decent boot from the entire U.S. leg of the 21st Century Breakdown Tour, of which Tuesday night's three-hour blowout was the final night.

Here's hoping the band, or anyone else, decides to remedy this situation starting in one month's time, when the three-month European leg kicks off. You can do it, fellas!

To compensate, we have a short, sharp FM broadcast from the launch of American Idiot almost (good gawd) five years ago...

just in time for the launch of the musical!

Go to the blog T.U.B.E.
Choose Green Day in the artists' list. You'll find the group April2009 concert in Oakland, CA.
Good quality, complete show.
Cheers... and thanks for your blog.

Thank you!

Yes, I have grabbed that one and the quality is OK, but it's a special show to premiere the album, not the proper tour show that I was lucky enough to see.

Don't get me wrong, it's a solid boot, but I'm still hoping for a 2-CD/DVD set of the actual tour setlist...

Thanks for stopping byt!
