Guess we'll get a new album soon? I wasn't a big fan of 21st Century Breakdown but I'm always in for new Green Day.

I would have liked 21st Century Breakdown better if the filler had been cut down. There were a handful of good songs but the rest didn't impress.

Double-edged sword. Cool to hear new music, but personally I'd hate it. I want to hear the songs I know. I hate listening to songs I don't know live. It makes me feel awkward.

blink-182 would never do something like this, and that's just one of the reasons why Green Day are the better band.

That is pretty cool to be honest. A really rare show. I mean I know a lot of people wanted to hear their favorite green day songs but Green Day will tour again. This must of been an experience of a life time. From the comments it seems they are going more straightforward rock. I am sorta glad they (or hope they) are ending that whole concept. I loved both american idiot and 21st Century Breakdown but by the 21cb there was a lot of filler and the concept did not make any sense.

Hopefully the new album drops within a year.

For all the complainers, it was a secret show, so you don't really have expectations on what will happen at a secret show!

They also played some super old songs. Most songs they played are more straight forward since there was no back ups on stage, just the three of them.

Pretty much this. It would suck if they did this at a scheduled show that people knew about and didn't advertise it as being nothing but new songs...but it being a secret show makes this kind of awesome.

Hopefully their next album will sound like just three guys. I don't want them to make Dookie again, but I would appreciate a more stripped down Green Day album.
