The special crowd moments at Green Day 2010

Posted by teibs On August - 8 - 2010

stagedivegreenGreen Day did such a spectacular job of getting the crowd involved that this section needed its own post. I captured three of my favorite moments, but there were 5 crowd participation moments that you couldn’t help but love.

5. The Cute little girl in pigtails

Billy sounded a little creepy at first when he said, “I want someone young. I want someone fresh. A fresh little boy or girl” but it couldn’t have been sweeter once she was on stage.

4. Everyone on stage!

This one really didn’t turn out that well. There were 15 creepy people on stage all trying to out-retard one another. The first dude on stage had gross bleached hair and planted a kiss right on a slightly fazed Billie Joe. It was amusing to see this collection of failure attempt something “clever” like hitting the cymbal with their bare hands while the band pretended not to be annoyed. At least we got all the fail out at once.

3. “Hey Jude”

This medley is all kinds of awesome all the way through, but when they go from “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” to “Hey Jude” at the five minute mark we go to sing-a-long town. Not a place I like to ever leave.

2. The breakout star on “Longview”

This kid nailed it. Sorry there’s no video for this guy, but the random guy from the crowd he chose to sing pretty much all of “Longview” ran around and owned the stage better than 75% of the front men I’ve seen this festival. He moved like he’s spent his life on stage in front of 75,000 people, jumped off the speakers, pumped the crowd up and at the end Billie Joe gave him a guitar. A breakout performance to say the least.

1. The Stage Dive

“Put down your cameras. Everyone put down your cameras. Come over here. He’s gonna do a stage dive.” You always hope a stage dive will go this well. They rarely do.

    Such a fun, fun show. I was going to split the time with Phoenix but just could not bring myself to leave. AMAZING. I hope Gaga took notes.

    Jealous much? His name is Billie Joe by the way, looks like you win the out-retard award.

    Why did he stop recording after East Jesus Nowhere? Holiday would have been epic!

    My favorite part of the medley is Zack’s laughing at Billy humping the stage.

  9. Maddie Said,

    Rachel, I’m pretty sure the “out-retard” comment was intended for the fans that climbed on stage, in no way targeting any of the band members. Mike, if you’re going to scrutinize someone else’s English, you might want to ensure yours is beyond reproach. If you’re not going to write a proper sentence, why bother using punctuation? That being said, I’d have loved to see this concert in person. Billie Joe has a phenomenal stage presence.
