August 1st was a big day for live music, full of surprises and tributes as artists like Green Day and Lady Gaga kicked off their North American Tours.
Green Day brought their Billboard hits and renowned enthusiasm to stage in Washington, performing some of their classics, including “American Idiot” and “Good Riddance.”
The first show of their Revolution Radio tour was made pretty special when the rockers brought fans on stage to sing along to not only one song, but two.
After some lucky chosen ones sang along to the verses to “Longview” and “Know Your Enemy”, Green Day performed “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” in tribute to Chester Bennington.
Later the played an acoustic piano version of “The Edge of Glory” and a moving rendition of “Dancin in Circles” that beautifully honored the LGBTQ community, before ending her set with an encore of her big 2016 single, “Million Reasons.”
In other, outdoor news, the Panorama Music Festival made fans of all genres, but especially R&B and Hip-Hop, very happy this past weekend.
NIN played a soul rattling show that included an uncharacteristically somber moment in their minimal cover of David Bowie’s “I Can’t Give Everything Away,” and French electro group Justice played a set so lit that the power blew out!
“This is our last show here in New York. This is it as Tribe,” the hip-hop pioneers told the stunned crowd. They spent their last moments on stage in NYC together as a platform to honor their late member, Phife Dawg and thanked their fans for supporting them during their twenty-nine-year career.
