Green Day’s three-hour, non-stop, insanely high-energy concert at the Verizon Amphitheater in Irvine last night was broken up into various acts—the punk-rockers kicked off with their modern hits from American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown; invited as many fans as possible to storm the stage and snap pics with them while they jammed through their older songs off of Dookie up to Warning; and ended the night with Billie Joe Armstrong turning it down a notch with an acoustic guitar for the three-song encore. But the absolute craziest part of last night’s epic show was when the band took a break from their own material to cover almost every classic rock song in existence—”Highway To Hell”, “Baba O’Riley”, “Sweet Child Of Mine”, “Hey Jude”, “Dancing With Myself”, “Iron Man” and “California Girls” were just a few of the dozens of rock songs given the Green Day touch. Check out our gallery of the Bay Area boys giving their fans one helluva night to remember.
