Green Day’s live souvenir of their 21st Century Breakdown tour satisfies without surprising. This is the name of the game for the kind of tour Green Day mounts in the 21st century. No longer playing smaller theaters, they fill the biggest stages, performing the kinds of sets where even accidents aren’t left to chance, so this resulting roundup of highlights from Dallas to Detroit, Brisbane to Nickelsdorf sounds like they all could have come from the same show, so precise is the band’s attack. The set list is a good mix that leans heavily on Green Day’s new millennium standards and the bandmembers never sound tired playing: they hit their marks with enthusiasm, which is enough to make Awesome as F**k fun, if not quite a live album for the ages.
