8 p.m. Friday
New Orleans Arena, 1501 Girod St., 587-3663; www.neworleansarena.com
In the early 1990s Green Day was a poster band for Left Coast DIY punk rock (39/Smooth, Kerplunk); by the late '90s it was a major-label pop/punk pariah (Insomniac, Nimrod). The 2000s wrought an opera-rockin' ombudsman for the second Bush administration (American Idiot, 21st Century Breakdown). For 2015, politically charged Puccini covers are not out of the question. Tickets $25-$49.50.
