Green Day could have certainly filled an arena, but befitting their desire to get back to their earlier punk roots, began an 11-city intimate venue tour right here in Columbus, at our very own Newport Music Hall, in support of their new recording, “Revolution Radio.”
There were many people who just couldn’t get entrance into the show, and those fortunate enough to command a ticket were treated to nearly two hours of Green Day tunes, spanning their 30-year career.
NID Magazine was able to cover the show courtesy of Green Day’s Manager, Patrick Magnarella. You see, it is good to have friends in high places.
The 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees pulled out all the stops, opening with “Bang Bang,” and “Revolution Radio.”
And of course, hits like “Welcome to Paradise,” and “When I Come Around” had the audience rolling and moshing.
It’s not often a band of Green Day’s caliber devotes an entire tour to nothing but up close and personal shows, and the delight of those present was evidence enough the concept was definitely winning vast approval.
