    I thought Billie Joe (from Green Day) was in rehab.
    If he’s out, that was one quick detox!
    If he’s not available the band will be a bit weak, as he sings and plays lead guitar on all the songs.

    Lol, this was the event Billie Joe gave his “1 minute left” rant at. Would love to see it aired live on TV, though I’m sure that won’t happen.

  • Andy

    They will cut out the Billy Joe part. It was the best thing of the night tho.

  • MBmomof3

    Love Green Day.

  • Samuel

    @The Watcher, this isn’t live, it’s just broadcasting the festival that took place a week or two ago.

  • NIknil

    Any chance to see Linkin Park cant be missed. They are even better live then in studio, and never disappoint..

  • Jason

    Aerosmith, eh? I wonder if they will perform their hits like “Dream On” or “Walk This Way?”
