I have wanted to see Green Day in concert for a good long while. It was insane to finally photograph them along with Against Me at 1st Bank Center recently – this band may have been around for over 30 years, but they are still kicking much ass. This was the first stop in Denver for the Revolution Radio tour; they return to Fiddler’s Green in August.
Nope. Age has not slowed these guys down. It was hard to keep up with Billie Joe Armstrong and he ran all over the stage as well as up and down the catwalk. Several times he brought fans up on stage and encouraged them to stage dive.
I admit that *I* showed my age, tearing up as I thought about how any of those kids could have been my own 14 year old son.
While Green Day (and Against Me) are still most definitely punk bands, the message of the night was love, unity and being yourself. A great thing for all ages to remember.
At one point Billie Joe declared he had just become a Broncos fan, and the place lit up more than the band’s pyrotechnics.
So, yeah… Denver is damn excited to have them back again this summer.
