Back to Bercy tonight after seeing the rehearsals this afternoon.
FFFFFFUUUCCCKKKK !!!!
One more time and for the 3rd time this year , I 've missed the beginning of the show , first time was @ L' album de la semaine for Canal+ on May 11th ( click to see review , pics & video ) then @ Trabendo on May 12th ( click to see review setlist and Pics ) and now it's Bercy.
How come ? Their audience is so young that they have to be home by 11 PM so they're playing early shows.
I've never EVER seen the Headliner starting its show at 8 PM in Bercy.
Anyway , Bercy was SOLD-OUT a long time ago , the place is packed with teenagers mostly females.
Great atmosphere of course, lots of singing and "oohhéé OOhhoo".
The trick of the night : have the kids singing " OohhOoéé OOhhOoo" every 2 minutes.
Hey guys you're beating these cunts from U2 with all these "OhhOOo ".

aT LEAST THERE WAS ONE pUNK ON STAGE TONIGHT ! ( right )

Billy is a real entertainer , the little guy is doing the show on his own , running everywhere for two hours.
He had many kids on the stage, some of them sung a bit others half a song, that's the nice part when you're going to a Green Day gig , you're ending up on stage with your idol , COOL.
They have some great tunes , some lame too but it's never dull, always entertaining for the kids ... because if you're a bit older it's FUCKING Disneyland !!!

The stage set up is cool with the backdrop and the screens , lots of pyros and flames all along the show but ...
Where's the PUNK in this ?

Billy is the main attraction it's not really Green Day anymore but more Billy & Co
Don't know why they ended the show with an acoustic song ???
