2 p.m. -- Green Day with the American Idiot cast
Security is crazy-tight at the Staples Center. Not only did we need to apply in advance for accreditation just to get in the door -- once we do get in, we have to empty our pockets and/or purses and go through a metal detector. We are given backstage pass-style stickers, told we must wear them at all times and escorted into the sectioned-off portion of the arena where the media (and a few lucky fans) are allowed to sit.
Green Day will be filming a video for their next single “Last of the American Girls” sometime soon with director Marc Webb, keep a lookout for it here in the near future.

Promoters of Broadway's "American Idiot" clearly know their target audience. On Sunday, the cast of the musical, which opens this year at New York's St. James Theater, will perform live at the Grammy Awards ceremony, which will be held at the Staples Center in downtown L.A.
Featuring music by the band Green Day, "American Idiot" opened at Berkeley Repertory last fall.
After an incredible three month record breaking run at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, American Idiot is coming to Broadway. It’s the show that Billie Joe called incredible and contagious. And Tre Cool referred to as dangerous, sexy and fucking amazing.
Under the direction of Tony Award winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), the show features every song from American Idiot plus great new material from Green Days latest, 21st Century Breakdown. The result is a live, musical experience that’s edgy, soulful and exhilarating.
