The smash-hit musical AMERICAN IDIOT tells the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Based on Green Day’s GRAMMY® Award-winning 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.

Queen's Freddie Mercury died in 1991, but in 2013 he can still get 60,000 people singing along to "Bohemian Rhapsody."
As fans waited for Green Day to take the stage at London's Emirates Stadium earlier this month, a video shot from the upper deck captures the crowd's enthusiastic sing-along of the 1975 hit.
The highlight comes around the 2:00 mark as the guitar kicks in and thousands of concertgoers on the field in front of the stage begin pogoing. The group effort reaches its loudest point here:
"So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye
So you think you can love me and leave me to die
Oh baby -- can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out -- just gotta get right outta here"
Commenters on the YouTube page where the video is posted were caught up in the moment as well.
"This makes me cry and smile so big at the same time. I love rock fans. Long live Queen!" wrote highlyillogical.
"Humans are so cool," said becauseimabigdork.
Direct from Broadway, the smash-hit musical AMERICAN IDIOT tells the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Their quest for true meaning in a post 9/11 world leads them on the most exhilarating theatrical journey of the season

I've had friends that have gotten tribute tattoos for their wives, husbands, girlfriends and boyfriends, and you know what? Those relationships never seem to last! Some believe that there is some kind of wacky curse that inflicts the relationship after going under the needle. Recently, Amber Rose got a HUGE tattoo of her fiancee Wiz Khalifa's face on her arm. It's so big that covering it up will prove near impossible, so let's hope for her it all works out! And you know what is surprising?
