Green Day Rocks Tony Awards, 'American Idiot' Wins Two

Green Day

The Tony Awards is not the event where you expect to see So-Cal punk rockers center stage -- but then again, "American Idiot" is not your typical Broadway musical. Green Day rocked the stage at the Tony's 64th awards show last night (June 13), performing with the cast of their acclaimed 'American Idiot' musical, which was nominated for three awards. The show lost Best Musical to "Memphis" (it did take home trophies for Best Scenic Design and Best Lighting Design), but that's ok -- Billie Joe and co. kicked off the event with a loud, raucous performance that ensured that no matter what, their performance would be the one that everyone would remember.
