Green Day to Play Irvine; Ready for Broadway
Those East-Bay-punks-turned-arena-rockers Green Day will visit the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on Aug. 31 as part of their North American tour. Bamboozle co-headliner AFI has been named the opener. In related news, the Broadway premiere of American Idiot--the stage version of Green Day's powerfully political 2004 album--opens at the St. James Theatre on April 20, y'know, just in case you have an upcoming trip planned to NYC and are into seeing rock albums being transformed into bloated musicals.
