Green Day LIVE AT READING FESTIVAL 2001 - Punk rock live concerts


60 min
Green Day is an American punk trio formed in 1987.The band has consisted of Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass guitar, vocals), and Tré Cool (drums, percussion) for the majority of its existence.

Green Day was originally part of the punk rock scene at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California. Its early releases for independent record label Lookout! Records earned them a grassroots fanbase, some of whom felt alienated when the band signed to a major label. Nevertheless, its major label debut Dookie (1994) became a breakout success and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. alone, and 15 million copies sold worldwide.As a result, Green Day was widely credited, alongside fellow California punk bands The Offspring and Rancid, with reviving mainstream interest in and popularizing punk rock in the United States. Green Day's three follow-up albums, Insomniac, Nimrod and Warning did not achieve the massive success of Dookie, but they were still successful, reaching double platinum, double platinum, and gold status respectively. Green Day's 2004 rock opera American Idiot reignited the band's popularity with a younger generation, selling five million copies in the U.S.

I love outdoor concerts I’m a girl who like going out and have fun. I love live music in general, and being outside listening to live music makes me feel flying. .Recently I was searching for concert tickets to attend Jimmy Buffett concert. You heard me. Jimmy Buffet. I know you’re jealous. And even the tickets were a little high priced; I went there and had great time. I can recommend you a site of FREE comparison tickets site & hope that everyone will attend live concerts.
