AFI Frontman an American Idiot

2011-02-12 by Davey Boy STAFF | 50 Comments
On February-27, a number of cast members will play their final performances on the Green Day inspired broadway musical 'American Idiot'.

While Michael Esper, John Gallagher Jr, & Christina Sajous will be leaving the show, new cast members will include American Idol season one runner-up Justin Guarini.

Additionally, composer & co-author of the show Billie Joe Armstrong will be replaced in his role of St. Jimmy for a two week run by none other than AFI frontman Davey Havok. What will be Havok's broadway debut will begin on March-1.

Oh come on Croc, you'd be there in a heartbeat if it came to Melbourne.

But for now, 'Rock of Ages' will have to do.

At this point, it seems Green Day and AFI both want to further reduce their fanbase solely to the preteen/teenage girl demographic.

How about less broadway and instead get that Blaqk Audio album out. More AFI as well because Crash Love was great.

Probably a really smart move on your mom's part.

I actually went and saw AI a few weeks ago and loved it. However, I dislike the way that they keep giving the role of St. Jimmy away to a bunch of celebrities when they have understudies who've worked their asses off to learn the role.
