Green Day Invite Fan On Stage To Play Guitar
As the Huffington Post reports (and as you can watch in the fan-shot video embedded below) Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong surveyed the crowd at the show at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago (on October 23), spotted an audience member holding a sign saying he could play every single song on the band’s breakthrough Dookie LP, and decided to put that claim to the test.
That fan, named Thomas Bulvan, from Bridgeport (Illinois, US), passed with flying colors. The Post‘s report applauds his prowling stage presence, saying he “seemed to be living the best day of his best life”, an impression confirmed by Bulvan’s Instagram account, which includes a post summing up the evening in suitably breathless fashion.
After the brilliant performance, Billie Joe Armstrong spurred the young Thomas (guitarist for a band called Mourning Wood) to leap from the stage onto the crowd below.
