10/04/00 Green Day @ Roseland Ballroom, New York, NY
Before they headlined Giants Stadium and provided inspiration for Broadway shows, Green Day played free shows at midsized venues to promote their new albums. This show was in conjunction with the release of Warning.
I don't recall the exact ticket procuring process, but it involved lining up outside Tower Records. Remember Tower Records? Remember buying CDs?
The show itself is hazy, but I'm sure it involved all their hits and their usual schtick of pulling audience members on stage for the punk classic "Blitzkrieg Bop."
They've certainly come a long way since then.
