The kings of '90s punk rock revivalists, Green Day, is currently on a world tour performing over two hours of their finest power pop and pure punk rock hits, along with a mix of selections of songs from their trio of new studio albums (¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tré!) that were released late last year. While that is going on, their 2004 rock opera album, American Idiot, is enjoying a long run as a touring musical after a Broadway production. It was first performed in 2009 but officially debuted in April 2010 and has since had successful runs in America and in the U.K. and Ireland, with well over 400 performances to date. The 90-minute-long Tony Award-winning stage adaptation of this Grammy-winning album is well into another stateside run and will keep running until early May of 2014.
EAST LANSING, MI -- Based on Green Day’s Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, "American Idiot," the Broadway hit of the same name comes to the Wharton Center starting tomorrow, Tuesday, April 9.
The show tells the story of three lifelong friends forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia.
MLive was able to chat with Alex Nee, who plays Johnny in the show. Here's what he had to say about his early love of Green Day, the stage and more.
