“So next year, in 2014, it’s gonna mark the 20-year anniversary of a record called Dookie,” announced Billie Joe Armstrong on Wednesday night, “So right now we’re going to play the whole record from front to back.” The whole performance seems to have come as a surprise to the London crowd, but thankfully one fan already had his camera rolling and captured the whole thing in high-quality HD video.

The album is pretty much classic rock by now, and the band still sounds great, plus it’s fun to hear fans, almost 20 years later, singing along with every word. For those looking to skip around, “Longview” comes at 7:53, “Basket Case” comes at 17:28, and “When I Come Around” comes at 25:36. But if you’re a fan you’ll want to listen to the whole thing, of course—that is, if you have the time.
