Your comments
It's bloody brilliant, the first ever live performance Green Day have put on DVD. The best part has to be American Idiot, play it with surround sound and you feel as you are there. Really good views of Mike playing the bass. I wonder how many drum ticks Tré Cool goes through. With Billie singing and putting in a great atmosphere to the crowd. It's the best Music/Video DVD I have ever watched. There really can't be a single Green Day fan not enjoying it. If you have not seen it, watch it. [Kitt Knight, 01/07/2006]
Definitely Green Day at their best, no doubt about it. This is a must have DVD for all Green Day fans. It captures the raw power and energy that is Green Day. With Billie Joe and Mike Dirnt rocking on their guitars and Tre Cool pounding those drums like a mad man, it makes for a spectacle that words cannot describe. You would have to be a real American Idiot not to buy Bullet In A Bible. [Gerardo Guzman, 12/29/2005]
Green Day's "Bullet in a Bible" is an extraordinary concert DVD. If one of you Green Day fans have not been able to see one of their shows, this is a DVD you must purchase to live the experience. Not only is the two day concert at the Milton Keynes, but it also includes a documentary between songs on how the band came about their 2004 album "American Idiot". The band comments on how they were about to give up Green Day, but Billie Joe Armstrong tells viewers what characters encouraged the album with the question "Who is the American Idiot?" This led to the theme of the album and this spectacular Audio/DVD with such great performances. Overall, this DVD is a must for any Green Day fan, 10 out of 10. [Raul Gomez, 12/06/2005]
This DVD is an A++ all around. Oakland Calafornia's best has done it again. This is what Green Day fans all across the world have waited for. The band that wrote the book on punk music preforming live in their most memorable concert yet. This show was by far the best concert I have ever, EVER seen. It is a must have for any Green Day and or punk music fan. Bullet in a Bible is sure to send a "bullet" into the hearts of Green Day fans, where it will last forever. I couldn't keep my eyes off the television. This DVD will have you glued to your seat and at the end have you begging for more. When listening I just had to blast the sound and rock out because Green Day really just ran rampid over England and tour the stadium down. The footage is so good that you will feel like you are there. Bullet in a Bible. #1 DVD from the #1 band. [Matt Matthew, 11/19/2005]
