Green Day is the only live band I have no problem saying is better than Bon Jovi. They play until they physically can't. And they run. And there is tonnes of energy. Damn fine live band.

They played monster sets this past tour. I saw them three times for 21CB. First was a promo/club show with 24 songs, and the other two got 33 and 34 songs respectively.

Saw them in 2005. Good show.

It's strange how they went from punk to MOR so quickly though. I remember seeing a show around 2000, some people in the crowd got their lighters out during Good Riddance. Billy Joe said "put those ****ing lighters away, we're not Bon Jovi"

A few years later and he's encouraging it.

seen Green Day 3 times 1995 (Brixton), 2005 (MK Bowl) & 2009 (Wembley Arena)

Very good although they had only released Dookie in 95 and the gig went on for about 30 mins.

They can play 40 odd song as most only last 2 minutes!

Great live band though.

I know a lot of my friends who say so about Green Day Live ... GD is better than Jovi ...
I love that band but never saw them live simply because they cancelled their shows in france a few years back (and I didn't get a refund by the way ) ..this is the kind of thing that makes you react COLD afterwards...But I know I am the one missing a great show if I don't go
42 songs and 4 hours .. that is impressive !

Saw them in Nov 2009. I've hardly ever seen a front-man 'heating up the crowd' with such energy. People literally didn't dare to sit down during the whole show. And that means a lot, especially in a country where most concertgoers are known for reservation and inactivity... The show was simply awesome!! I'd go see them again at any time.

By the way, I think Billie Joe Armstrong's also a brilliant songwriter.

hah are you kidding me? Jesus of Suburbia is 10 minutes long, and the songs between the new 2 albums average 4 minutes a song. They actually don't have many songs under 3 minutes... so dunno what your talking about there.

Oh dear. New trendy fan alert.
Got the first 5 albums? by that I mean Kerplunk and 39/smooth- as well as Dookie plus the next 3?

Only from American Idiot did the songs get longer.

Apology accepted.
