Green Day and the director of Broadway’s Spring Awakening are set to make a debut musical on 2004 punk "American Idiot" this Fall. The American Idiot musical will premiere September 4th at California’s Berkeley Repertory Theatre and run through October 11th. I can’t imagine too many Green Day fans, buying Broadway theater tickets.

    P.S I THOUGHT THAT THE MEANING "SELL-OUT" meant that they were, like out-dated. But yea, i think that their concert will rock and definatly sell out. Im saying this 8 minutes after I posted this message, but im not deleteing it. WHOEVER THINKS GD ARE OUT-DATED LOSER BECAUSE OF THIER NEW ALBUM, NOT BEING VERY PUNK AND HAVING A OPERA....PLEASE READ THIS MESSAGE. I want to get the point across (especially to you 21-century-breakdown haters!!! =P) But wait, no im confused, what is this question??

    Are Green day sellouts, outdated losers, and the most dissapointing thing to Punk-Rock?

    Or...

    Is the concert going to be sold out?

    PLZ ANSWER!!!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

    Its a rock-opera. They are the first punk band to preform a OPERA. and its a cool opera, not one of those spanish soap operas you see in early afternoon!!

    Micheal Jackson wasnt a sellout when Thriller came out- and did you see the Thriller music video? It told a story, same with Beat It. I think he made the fact of singing stories famous to MTV.

    And Bon Jovi? Thier stories about Tommy and Jeana...."Livin on a Prayer" gained them popularity...and they arent sellouts. theyre older than GD and still rockin.

    To all you Dookie- fans, GREEN DAY ISNT GOING TO MAKE ANOTHER "DOOKIE" They grew out of the topic of PD, ...""""

    To all you Dookie- fans, GREEN DAY ISNT GOING TO MAKE ANOTHER "DOOKIE" They grew out of the topic of PD, masturbation, sex, and using code-names for drugs like "Geek Stink breath" and "green day"
    (AKA cyrstal meth sink breath and marrijuana!). The clostest thing to dookie that will be realesed is a re-issue of that album.

    And its not like, a cheesy opera. Its not like general hospital, or a soap opera like that. Its not like an italian opera with a fat lady singing. Its a COOL ROCK OPERA with st jimmy, whatsername, jesus of suburbia, and feat. christian and gloria!!

    just because they were smart enough to bring punk to the masses who otherwise would have never known it existed doesn't make them sellouts i believe them when they say they're not in it for the money they just wanted people to hear what they had to say if they would bring the musical to pittsburgh or even to my hometown of Uniontown, Pa (we have an amazing theater that no rock bands ever consider called the State Theater) I would def go and I know a lot of people who would as well

    They wrote a rock opera, and they want to put it on stage!!
    Why is everything this band does make them "sell-outs"?!
    If I lived in California I would most definitely go!!
    I don't see how this makes them sell-outs
    or how anything in the past made them sell-outs!!

    I don't think that they are sellouts. Maybe they might be more famous, but that doesn't mean that they are sellouts.

    Of course they're not, they're just stretching their wings with their music now that they have more of a following.

    American Idiot was a great album that hit big time, so it's only natural that they'd want to open up other venues with it.

    NO! The Who did a musicle and they are one of rocks big influences. They did Tommy the blind deaf dumb kid whoplayed pinball. Green Day is following in great footsteeps considering The Who is one of their influences. Remember even idols have idols.

    I would love to go to a Green Day musical. XD

    But they're just trying to get their message out to more people, get more fans. They're being diverse, and people can't handle it.

    Maybe they aren't small time anymore. But they still care about the music and the message. Sell out is a term thrown around far too much when a band changes or gets more success. Personally, I love American Idiot, and I love musicals. I most likely wouldn't be able to go, but I would love to if I got the chance.
