SAN FRANCISCO (ALICE @ 97.3/CBS) – Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong is returning to the Broadway production of American Idiot. Armstrong will be taking over the role of St. Jimmy for 50 performances starting January 1st.
The move for him to reprise the role, now portrayed by Tony Vincent, appears to be due to poor ticket sales for the Broadway show. According to the New York Times the week that Billie Joe previously appeared, American Idiot played to 93.4 percent capacity. If you want to catch Billie Joe his show dates are Jan 1-9, Jan 18-30, Feb 10-27.
