Green Day in the Far East – China and Billie’s Gibson Acoustic Inlay Guitar

Billie Joe's Guitar - Screenshot by CarmenPunkGirl

Thanks to Chinese fans at the Green Day Community, we have some video of Green Day in China, including this one, the acoustic solo. Billie gave away his Gibson “Billie Joe” inlay acoustic guitar at the end of the second encore. Don’t mind the singing along in the video. It’s how it’s supposed to be. These songs were meant for everyone to sing, together. I can only imagine what was going through Billie, Mike, and Tre’s minds as they performed in China for the first time and the arena sang with them.

Good times, I presume.

To whoever received his guitar, please use it to sing songs of rebellion, freedom, beer, sex, and courage. Thanks.

More video of various quality here.

Green Day and Prima Donna: To the Far East and New Places

Far East Shows - Green Day with guests Prima Donna

Prima Donna just tweeted their farewells to the States as they and presumably, Green Day, head off to the Far East. The tour starts on January 12 with stops that include Bangkok, where GD performed in the 90s, and three new stops: Singapore, South Korea, and a place where Green Day has mentioned wanting to make an album, China (or more specifically, Hong Kong). The tour ends with four stops in Japan. I’m not sure if we’ll get videos on Youtube for these shows, including the four in Japan, which is a bit of a shame. Not too many people on either the Green Day Community or the Idiot Club have many members, and while there is an official Japanese fan club,  I cannot read it! And truthfully, if it’s as sucky as the official Idiot Club is wont to be.. well, I’ve said too much already.

It would be nice to have some in-depth reports from both the band and fans as Green Day hits three new countries for the first time. Hey guys, this seriously calls for tweeting! Come on, you can do it! 🙂

I’m sure though, that Prima Donna will share their road trip with us, particularly if it’s their first trip to the Far East. Prima Donna made two lovely videos of their time in Europe. You can watch Pt. II of Prima Donna’s tour here.

We’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed that Green Day fans in the Far East will post some videos of both bands rocking out in Asia. There is one lucky fellow that I know who will be heading to Japan to see them, if he can get tickets to the shows when he gets there. It’s been a little impossible to order tickets for the shows in Japan from England but I’m sure he’ll be fine when he gets there!

Until then, have a blast guys, and please, obey ALL local laws. LOL. Thanks!
