In the summer of 2005, Green Day performed in front of some of its largest crowds ever--quite an achievement for a band that crashed into the mainstream back in 1994, with the release of their seminal pop-punk album DOOKIE. With catchy melodies, smart songwriting, and a strong sense of humor, band members Billy Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Al Sobrante had an enormous impact on the musical culture of the '90s. The band has had its ups and downs since then, but they achieved another big hit and a new level of critical respect with 2004's powerful rock opera AMERICAN IDIOT. Their searing performances at Britain's enormous Milton Keyes National Bowl provides the material for this concert film, which is directed by Samuel Bayer, the man behind their acclaimed "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" video. Hits from IDIOT are played here side-by-side with old standbys like "Basket Case," "Longview," and "Minority." Also included are in-depth interviews with the band and exclusive backstage footage.
