Billie Joe gets the show started on a high note


Green Day is hot!

The background light show was very fitting for New York!

Tre` Cool on the drums, and yes he is cool!

Everyone in the band lies down on stage

Fireworks lit up the show

Elija was called from the audience to "be saved"

One of the most fun things about a Green Day show is the many people the group brings up from the audience to sing or play with the group.

And yet another fan is brought up to join in

The most amazing guitar player from the audience was Stephanie, catch her on video here

Not all the fans sounded as good as they looked

The crowd roars for more!
