Yesterday I had the opportunity to go see American Idiot, Greenday’s broadway musical live at the St. James theatre in New York. Full disclosure: Greenday was my favorite band in middle school. Insomniac was one of the first albums I ever purchased, and during this particular performance, Billie Joe, Greenday’s lead singer played the role of St. Jimmy, which was a pretty awesome surprise.
Best part? As the encore performance, Billie came out and performed Time of Your Life. It was like being in middle school again except when I sang along my voice didn’t crack as much.
Greenday’s next album, ‘Awesome As Fuck’ comes out March 15, 2011. You can buy tickets to see American Idiot here.
