Show Reviews, All About Dookie

Two complimentary show reviews are available online - one for the gig in Auckland and the other for the concert at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne.

Edit: Check out more reviews here, here, here, and here.

" Here's what $103.30-plus-booking-fee gets you at a show by the Californian punk veterans: Fireworks, confetti, flame throwers, fire bombs, mirror balls, water pistols, wardrobe changes, two encores, toilet paper drops, free T-shirts and two-and-a-half hours of some of the best pop-punk around."

For those of you keeping up with "All About Dookie" by AJ Ramirez over at, the entry for "Pulling Teeth" is up.
"Sandwiched between album highlights "Welcome to Paradise" and "Basket Case", the song easily falls prey to "album track syndrome", where a listener is prone to skip over it in order to get to another, more familiar tune. I certainly do that every time I listen to the record, partly because it's not one of my favorites, but more importantly because it kills the momentum the album has been riding out up to that point. I know "Pulling Teeth" has its fans, but I've always found it a bit boring."
