Jet Pranks Green Day Complete with (Male) Strippers!

And while Green Day is pranking Prima Donna, Jet ended their Australian tour with… hunky male strippers pranking Green Day. Billie Joe gets in on the stripping action, Tre looks like the happiest camper on earth and Mike… just can’t stop laughing!

Once again, Proudweirdo from Australia captures the legendary moment!

Billie Went Barf… Or Potty… Australia Endings

The Australian leg of Green Day’s 21st Century Breakdown tour took a slight turn to the scary when the band had to cancel and reschedule the last night in Melbourne unexpectedly. It seems that the day before, one particular member of the band… the lead singer to be exact… had a bad case of the runs after eating something bad. Greendaylove38 suggested that it was a bad kangaroo, but who knows what the heck he ate?

Proudweirdo from the GDC was at the rescheduled show and posted this video of the band performing “East Jesus Nowhere,” and Billie mentions the “d” word (dysentery) and the band goes on to save five lucky Australian souls:

Potty and Salvation Time – “East Jesus Nowhere” – Green Day — Melbourne, December 16, 2009

Thankfully, he’s doing good now, and Australia experienced a number of wonderful things, including Jet pranking Green Day at the Melbourne show (male strippers, can’t wait for that video) as well as Tre’s birthday celebration, where he turned 37 years young. Thanks to Cynnasaur, we have birthday cake madness during “King For A Day”:

The lovely Kerry from Australia was lucky enough to experience all of Rocktober in England as well as the Down Under Rampage in Australia. She posted a shiteload of photographs on Facebook, but unfortunately, they are set to Friends only. I asked her if I could post a some from the tour (I’ll post more if I get a chance), and here are a few of my favorites:

Green Day now moves on to the Kiwis, with two shows in Auckland on December 18th and 19th. Hopefully no one will come down with dysentery there!

Australia and New Zealand, WallaBabies!

Sorry for the delay in posting, but I’ve been in a bit of a funk for the past few days  thinking about California too much. It has started to turn cold here in New York City, and it’s snowing both inside and outside of my apartment now. However, I don’t think you’ve come here to listen to me bitch and moan. Or did you?

I think not!

So instead, let’s take a mental trip to the Great Down Under where our boys, Billie Joe, Mike and Tré and their badass crew have come to the hot summer rescue of thousands of Aussie and New Zealand fans on a two-week tour of those countries. The tour kicked off at the Burswood Dome in Perth yesterday, December 4th and heads off to Adelaide, Brisbane, and Sydney, with two nights in Auckland, New Zealand, and wrapping up on December 19th.

Luckily, we got a little bit of Storytime with Billie (see a selection of previous Storytimes here) in Perth, thanks to this Youtube of “Give Me Novacaine” that karma1215 at the GDC found:

Billie Joe Tells a Story of Attending a Non-Lesbian Mud Wrestling Boxing Match in Perth with Australian Boxer Danny Green

I tried to keep up with what happened at the Perth concert (read about the show here), but if you’ve heard of a thing called a TIME ZONE, then you know it’s difficult to check out what’s happening at a concert that starts at 7:00 AM for you. Ha! Those boys are gonna have a helluva jetlag time when they get back home and then trot off to Japan and the Far East in January. Aww.

Don’t feel too sorry for their jetlag, though. They are having a damned good time with reports of them attending a Lesbian mud wrestling match and Tré Cool jumping out of airplanes, playing golf, applying for bartending jobs and wrestling sharks and shit. Oh wait, the shark part isn’t true. But I’m sure he’d try if he could! (Please don’t get any crazy shark rassling ideas, dude.)

Here is a small set of photographs from the show in Perth, with shots of the fans, and the opening band, Jet.

Well, that’s it from Aussie country for now. The next show is in Adelaide, on December 6th, whenever the fuck time that works out to be!

Tre Talks with Australian Radio on Nova 96.9 FM

Green Day is in Australia right now preparing for their two-week tour of that country which starts on December 4 (whenever the heck that happens here in the States, I have no frigging idea). The kids from Australia at the GDC posted this link from Australian Radio as Ryan Monty & Wippa chat with Tre on Nova 96.9 FM.
