Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Ever since we got a press release about Green Day's impending album, 21st Century Breakdown, a few weeks ago, I've been eager to see when the band would start playing live again. Turns out our sister paper in San Francisco was there to see Billie Joe, Tre, and Mike play for the first time in two years. Well, play as Green Day for the first time in two years, anyway, since they were here in Phoenix under assumed names about a year ago.

Anyway, the reviewer was not quite as excited about it as I probably would have been, but it's worth checking out her take on the show.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
