Throwback Concert: Green Day at Webster Theater 1997

Throwback Concert: Green Day at Webster Theater 1997

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 1997!

That year PLR welcomed Green Day to Hartford’s Webster Theater. Green Day hit the road in 1997 to support their fifth studio album “Nimrod,” which featured such singles Hitchin’ a Ride, Good Riddance (Time of Your Life), Redundant and Nice Guys Finish Last.

Joining Green Day at the Webster Theater was special guest Superdrag.

This would be Green Day’s final club show in Connecticut. They had played two other club shows in the Hartford area prior to 1997. It would be 5 years before they’d return to Connecticut and that show in 2002 took place at The XFINITY Theater.
