Hoards of fans made their way from the dirt lots that surround the USANA Amphitheatre and packed into the venue. Grabbing a slice of pizza, some nachos or a beverage from the selection of Coors Light or a Redds Ale, people mull around the grounds, conversing with each other in the festival-like atmosphere. Excited fans of all ages are scattered throughout the whole venue, and kids, couples, families and fans since the 1990s abound. Countless 21st Century Breakdown, American Idiot and the newest Revolution Radio T-shirts were displayed on just about every body in the area. At the stage, everyone was on their feet, leaning forward in anticipation for the band to take the stage. As the crowd finished singing the lyrics to the Queen‘s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” a giant bunny was released onstage. It’s no ordinary bunny, as it dances for the crowd and proceeds to mime delivering stuffed baby bunnies from a red X on its ass and throwing them to the lucky crowd members. After a few bunny gifts, a wrangler dashes out onstage to take him away, and the music is about to start.
