Green Day @ Wiltern Theatre
Eighteen months ago, these punk pioneers were one step from the nostalgia circuit, desperately trying to recapture the spark that made Dookie a multi-platinum mid-’90s phenomenon and ushered moshing into the pop mainstream. And then along came American Idiot, in which Billie Joe and company not only got political but plugged into the cross-generational zeitgeist in creating their own version of Tommy. Coming off a year and a half of nonstop touring, a bevy of Grammy and MTV awards, the NoCal band followed up two sold-out shows at the 20,000+ Home Depot to play a live webcast in front of an invited crowd for Kevin Wall’s Network LIVE initiative, a joint project with AEG, AOL Music and XM.
