We saw Green fxxxing Day

Last Saturday I took Number One Son to London for an amazing day buying comics, eating burgers (and later pretzels, snack fans) before ending up at Wembley Stadium to see Green Day. It was his first rock concert and it couldn’t have got any better or bigger as he was seeing his favorite band in a venue twice the size of our village. Green Day were brilliant – whipping through their hits old and new – all the while entertaining the crowd with the usual audience participation, (including recruiting three lucky members of the audience up on stage to perform with them) playing silly cover versions and being really great fun. One thing I wasn’t prepared for (and this is where I’m showing my age) was the amount of effing and geoffing coming from the mouth of singer Billie Joe Armstrong. As Number One Son said later “I learnt some new words tonight, Dad” and he weren’t f@!!?$% wrong!
