Year Two 30/365 : 21st Century Breakdown

Andy and I were in Manchester at the MEN to see Green Day tonight... this is the second time we have been to see them and it was simply amazing!

It is unbelievable to think that Billie Joe, Tre and Mike have been a band for 21 years but when you see them together you can believe it. They have such chemistry together and put on such an amazing show.

I was happy to see that there were so many Brits that also love some good American punk music. I did however have a bit of an odd moment when they were singing 'American Idiot'. I did wonder what thousands of British people think of when they sing 'I don't want to be an American idiot'. hhmmmm...

I honestly believe that Oasis should be ashamed to even say they are from Manchester after this show. Here are three guys from Southern California who have been a band for only a few years longer than Oasis and they come to their home town of Manchester and show them how it should be done.

Next time Green Day are back in England you can count on Andy and I being there again!

HI Christine-- we were in town doing shoping by the Arndale yesterday and I did see a few people scalping tickets to the Green Day gig near the Victoria train station! :) Glad you had fun.
