AFI/Greenday Show - Phoenix, AZ

AZ Republic Review of the Show (Has some good pictures)

My review:  Best show ever.  I could just leave it at that, but here's some fun numerical stats:

2 - Number of times Billie Joe mooned his bum at the crowd

6 - Age of the cute little boy who was brought on stage during the show
3 - Number of hours Greenday performed for (freaking amazingness)
2 - Number of rolls of T.P. shot at the crowd from a guitar T.P. shooter device thingy

1 - Number of crazy, beer drinking pink bunnies that were on stage.  Disturbing and HILARIOUS
1994 - The year Greenday released Dookie (with the poop flinging monkey's on the cover that I thought was just hilarious - I was in 9th grade - have liked them ever since)

Greenday totally surpassed my expectations -- they put on such a rockin' show.  Even the folks on the lawn were rockin'!  What an amazing band!  Hubby and I had the most fun we have had in years!!  I felt youthful again rather than like a 31 year old mommy of 4 kiddies.  It was fantastic!   AFI was great too!  They played Miss Murder almost as well as I can rock it on Guitar Hero III!  

Me and my cute hubby (a little shiny and sweaty) at the show!

Mic rocking out and dripping with sweat!  Good times!!

LOVE your hair! And I'm kinda jealous. I really not much of a concert person these days but that looks so fun!

Thanks Britt! I just got my hair cut yesterday (I donated to locks of love . . . another post coming soon) - it is a bit shorter than I would like, but it will grow! I love the layers though, it got rid of lots of the thickness of it all.

We have not been to a concert for a long time, but we decided on a whim to go and I am so glad we did, it was a fantastic date!
