Concert Review: Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Weezer, And The Interrupters Rock Oracle Park In San Francisco, CA

Last night (August 27), Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Weezer, and The Interrupters brought their “Hella Mega” tour to Oracle Park in San Francisco, CA. The show was one of the biggest Bay Area concerts since the start of the pandemic and it was nothing short of incredible.

The Interrupters opened the show with a fun ska punk set. The short, energetic performance helped set the tone for the evening and those who showed up early were not disappointed. Some highlights from their set included “She’s Kerosene” and a rockin’ cover of Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy.”

After The Interrupters, it was time for Weezer to take the stage. The band really got things going with shredding songs from their latest album “Van Weezer” mixed with all of their hits. The crowd really went nuts for tracks like “Hash Pipe,” “Say It Ain’t So,” “Buddy Holly,” and the band’s cover of Toto’s “Africa,” which all turned into giant singalongs. By the time they finished, the audience was already at a high that only extended when Fall Out Boy took the stage.

Fall Out Boy were especially impressive with a set full of hit songs backed by cool visuals and massive amounts of pyro. Pete Wentz even performed with a flame throwing bass, reminiscent of the one famously used by Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx, while frontman Patrick Stump performed some tracks on a flaming piano. The band were one of the most entertaining acts of the night, keeping everyone dancing with hits like “Uma Thurman,” “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up),” “Dance, Dance,” “Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down,” “Thnks fr the Mmrs,” and “This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race.”

As soon as Fall Out Boy were done, it was time for the most explosive band of the night, the Bay Area’s own Green Day. The group kicked off the high-octane set with “American Idiot” much to the delight of the audience. Before finishing up the song, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong encouraged everyone to put their phones away, saying that we spent all of quarantine on our devices and that it was time to be together. From there, the group powered through “Holiday” and “Know Your Enemy,” before playing their newest single “Pollyanna,” which promised that “everything’s gonna be alright” in these unprecedented times. From there, it was just hit after hit with songs like “Boulevard Of Broken Dreams,” which saw the crowd light up the whole stadium with their phones, “Longview,” which sent everyone into a frenzy with Mike Dirnt’s iconic bass line, and “Basket Case,” which had everyone in full-on party mode. Aside from those tracks, other highlights included ballads like “21 Guns” and “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” rockers like “Minority,” and the group’s nine-minute epic “Jesus Of Suburbia.” The show appropriately wrapped up with “Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)” and a blast of fireworks.

All in all, it was an amazing show full of great music that helped bring everyone together, while also providing a much needed escape from the outside world.
