AFI’s Davey Havok to star in Green Day’s ‘American Idiot’ musical

Singer will take musical's lead role for two weeks

AFI frontman Davey Havok is set for a two-week stint in the lead role in Green Day‘s American Idiot musical.

Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong has been portraying the show’s lead character, St Jimmy, for the past two months in the Broadway adaptation of the band’s 2004 album.

His time in the show is set to end on February 27, with Havok taking over on March 1.

American Idiot originally opened at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in California in September 2009, before transferring to the St James Theatre on Broadway. It has been showing there since March 2010.

AFI, who released their eighth album ‘Crash Love’ in 2009, supported Green Day on their US tour last summer.
