Certain, shall we say, issues hampering frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's ability to perform led Green Day to postpone their their fall tour behind ¡UNO!, ¡DOS! and ¡TRE!, which included a Mohegan Sun date (now on for April 6). Luckily, American Idiot, a Broadway musical based on Green Day's Grammy-winning album of the same name, has made the rounds of theaters across the country. Head to the Bushnell this week to hear tunes like "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," "21 Guns," "Wake Me Up When September Ends" and "Holiday" pieced together as a narrative about three lifelong, surburban friends in pursuit of their rock dreams. (Then, of course, go see the band in April; Best Coast opens.)
Feb. 26-March 3, $20-$75, The Bushnell, 166 Capitol Ave., Hartford, (888) 824-2874, thebushnell.org.
