The post Green Day Play a Whole Bunch of Rarities at Surprise Chicago Club Show appeared first on Consequence.

Ahead of their headlining performance at Lollapalooza on Sunday, Green Day played an intimate warmup show at Chicago’s Metro on Friday night. For fans who managed to score a ticket to the 1,100-persons capacity venue, they witnessed a career-spanning 28-song set that included a number of live rarities.

Green Day seemingly treated the night as akin to a club show from their early days, playing most material from early albums like Kerplunk, Dookie, Insomniac, and Warning.

Notably, the band performed “Warning” and “Church on Sunday” for the first time since 2001. They also delivered the first full band performance of “Watsername” since 2005.

The setlist also included “Letterbomb,” “Private Ale,” “Christie Road,” “One of My Lies,” “Geek Stink Breath,” and “J.A.R.” — none of which had been played live since 2016-2017.

You can find the full setlist and fan-captured video of the concert below.

Following their performance at Lollapalooza, Green Day will next headline San Francisco’s Outside Lands and Sea.Hear.Now Festival in Asbury Park.
