Armstrong then led the crowd in a chant screaming “Ukraine”. This chant eventually merged into their second song of the night, “Holiday”, making the crowd go wild.
Shortly after that song ended, Green Day asked the crowd for a volunteer and brought a young boy on the stage to help perform “Know Your Enemy”.
It is safe to say that will be a memory the boy will never forget.
The band continued to play popular hits for the crowd to sing along to, including “Pollyanna”, “Welcome to Paradise” and “Still Breathing”.
In the middle of their set, Green Day paid a tribute to Kiss by covering their song “Rock and Roll All Nite”. While playing the tambourine, one of Green Day’s members even had on Kiss’s iconic makeup for the song.
After thrilling the audience with performances of “When I Come Around” and “21 Guns”, Green Day once again brought two more guests on stage.
But this time, one of the guests was no stranger to the band.
After letting an audience member play guitar with them during a cover of Operation Ivy’s “Knowledge”, they brought out a special performer.
Armstrong’s son, who goes by Jakob Danger, joined him on stage to play guitar during “She”. Ironically, this was not the first time Danger took the stage that day since his band, Ultra Q, performed earlier that evening.
Near the end of the night, Green Day had everyone in the crowd dancing along to a cover of The Isley Brother’s song “Shout”.
The band continued to perform more iconic songs, playing “Wake Me Up When September Ends”, “I Don’t care”, “Jesus of Suburbia” and “Dearly Beloved”
After the encore, confetti exploded and fireworks illuminated the Atlanta skyline as Green Day brought the night to an end with a performance of “Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)”.
Starting in June, Green Day will travel throughout Europe, accompanied by Fall Out Boy and Weezer, to begin their Hella Mega Tour.
