If you read my blog regularly you will already know I am a huge music fan and love going to gigs and festivals. So you can imagine how exciting it was to see my favourite band last week, Green Day at Leeds First Direct Arena.
It is quite a few years since Green Day were last in the UK and they were only playing a few dates which meant getting tickets was hard! Both me and my friend had a stressful time trying but finally got a pair of seats right up at the back. Although I prefer standing I was grateful to be anywhere seeing them!
Green Day at Leeds First Direct Arena was an amazing gig. Despite being sat up in the gods the atmosphere was incredible and both me and my friend had a brilliant night. Green Day played a mix of their newest album and the older songs everyone knows and loves. They got people up on stage singing and playing the guitars with them, had people crowd surfing and gave away one of their guitars to a young boy they got up. (How amazing will that story be to tell his friends or tell when he starts his own band?!) There was some political talk, but it was very light-hearted and funny and it didn’t take away from the show.
