Green Day Rocks!
the cure to a stressful day in the office is most certainly a rock concert- with green day no less. they were absolutely fabulous! the music system was great, and billy's singing was pitch perfect that it felt as if i was listening to a cd recording of his singing!
we started out at the back of the crowd, coming in late, even on my tippy toes i wouldn't haven't been able to see much. Horrors to the horrors when, at one point, we found ourselves stuck behind a giant. But i knew what i was there for, so we shoved and danced right to the front of the crowd until i could almost touch them! It was awesome! Although i started panting like i'd run a marathon after some time!
Best of all, the concert was so interactive and fun. first a young boy was brought up on stage to sing with billy. this cute chubby lil chinese boy was then urged, by billy, to jump into the crowd and body surf. it was so cute that this...10 year old boy?...looked at billy in amazement almost saying, 'you want me to jump? are you crazy'. and he did jump that boy! must have been the night of his life.
green day brought a couple more people up on stage, but one mat with green hair must have felt fabulous when billy let him sing the song from start to finish- i can't now remember which song it was, but this mat was just fabulous. he had good time on stage, and looked like he was born to be on stage. =) he did us all proud.
they played from 9-11.30am with 3 encores, the energy was fabulous! playing songs from their latest album 21st century breakdown, and thier best hits of the earlier albums. I went crazy with basket case and their earlier hits that made me fall hard for their music in the first place!
they finished with their 3rd encore of 'Wake me up when September Ends' and 'Time of our Life'! It was utterly fabulous! 21 years they've been playing, and the first time in Singapore- the pent up energy of the crowd that has been waiting so long for them to come just made the night absolutely perfect!
i was still humming them songs all night long. and even w 3 hours of sleep under my belt right now- i'm still all buzzed up with the excitement of last night's awesome gig.
only problem now is the sore legs, and the sore back from being bashed from behind in the mosh pit- i'm definitely toooooooooooo old for this! =)
