Kaiser Chiefs warmed us up tonight at Madison Square Garden in New York for the main event:  Green Day!

Billie Joe Armstrong has energy that is unrivaled and he showed it off tonight during the bands 2 hour plus set!  They came on stage a little after 9 pm and played hit after hit to the sold out crowd.  In between songs, Billie Joe told stories, joked with the audience, got the crowd cheering and chanting and even shared the spotlight with some fans that he called on stage to sing and play guitar.

Setlist courtesy of  Thanks!!!

At some point, Billie Joe did a little homage to rock and roll doing little snatches of “Thank You” by Led Zeppelin and”Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns N’ Roses.  During his rendition of the Animal House classic “Shout,” he sang parts of “Earth Angel” and the Jackson 5’s classic “I’ll Be There.”

Enough about that… More Green Day pix!
