The Broadway rock musical "American Idiot" is based on the Grammy-Award winning album bearing the same name as Green Day's hit album. TicketHunterOnline announces a large 20% discount of all 2012-2013 shows across the US, following an onstage outburst by Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day's frontman
As reported by Playbill, Green Day's lead singer (who has appeared in the widely popular show), will officially seek treatment for substance abuse after the recent iHeartRadio Festival.
Armstrong, who performed alongside Green Day Sept. 21 at the Las Vegas festival, stopped mid-song when the band was left with only one minute to finish its set.
The band released the following statement Sept. 23 on the website GreenDay.com: "Billie Joe is seeking treatment for substance abuse. We would like everyone to know that our set was not cut short by Clear Channel and to apologize to those we offended at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas. We regretfully must postpone some of our upcoming promotional appearances."
Direct from Broadway, the smash-hit musical tells the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Based on Green Day's multi-platinum album and featuring the hits "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," "21 Guns," "Wake Me Up When September Ends," "Holiday" and the blockbuster title track, 'American Idiot' boldly takes the American musical where it's never gone before. The Album has won a Grammy.
With direction by Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), choreography by Steven Hoggett (Black Watch) and orchestrations and arrangements by Tom Kitt (Next to Normal), the result is an experience Charles Isherwood of The New York Times declares "thrilling, emotionally charged, and as moving as any Broadway musical I've seen this year!"
