The Green Day punk rock band profile their “American Idiot” concert at Milton Keynes in London, England in 2005. In the two-day concert they drew 130,000 people, capacity crowds. Samuel Bayer(“A Nightmare on Elm Street”) directed the event. Songs included “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” Holiday,” Basket Case,” and “Boulevard of Broken Dreams.” It was the first and last time I will hear them. Didn’t care for the music. The popular band at that time was around for 16 years. I’m sure they have many fans who love their sounds and antics, but I’m not in their target audience. But for GD fans, this DVD might get them raising their hands in appreciation as the concert-goers did.
I’ll say this for the band, they have a lot of energy.
