Saturday April Fools Day was also a Concert Day down in Downtown St Paul at the Excel Energy Center home of the Minnesota Wild. Tonights concert was Green Day. I saw them in the mid 90’s but I have always wanted to see them again. I was surprised to see such a huge sold out crowd. I was aware that they had a big following, but the size of the crowd and the large variations in age really blew my mind!
They played for about 2 hours, but 30 minutes of that was crowd interaction and random killing time. They brought a few people out of the crowd to do random things. They had a couple kids come up and sing and they even had a kid come out of the pit to play some guitar with the band. They even let him keep the guitar, pretty cool.
