Wait, WHAT!!!?? I’m seriously just as confused as you are. Not only is Green Day back in action, but they are releasing a new album titled “21st Century Breakdown” and will be playing at a 600-person, NYC club, in honor of the release. The last time Green Day went on tour they could easily sell out 10,000 person stadiums all over the country. Their last cd sold over twelve million copies, and I’m almost nervous to see how fast these tickets will sell out and how much stubhub will be selling them for. As crazy as this sounds, even if I’ll be in the area, I’m not so sure how much I’ll be trying to get my foot in that door. The screaming teenagers and industry execs who will flood the crowd do not sound like an appealing audience to me, but then again, what if they play “Time of Your Life”??? That would change everything. Oh well – anyways, if you’re interested in going, the show is May 18 (three days after the cd release); let the mosh-pit ensue.
