I just ordered tickets for AMERICAN IDIOT, playing in Ft. Lauderdale this week.  I am so excited, can't wait to see this play.  I hope the road cast is good, I've wanted to see American Idiot since it first came out and was very happy when I heard ads on the radio.   :D  :dance:  :)

So they showed it on tv in Australia and aren't planning on releasing it on DVD in Europe (or anywhere else that isn't the US so far that we've heard right?) so I guess it isn't a massive leap to assume they may just show it on tv everywhere eventually maybe because it won't turn a massive profit if it's released worldwide on dvd. I may just be being hopeful because I wouldn"t mind seeing it.

People of Britain - Broadway Idiot hits your airwaves next week. Tune your television sets to SkyArtsHD on May 5th+6th. Check your TV Guide for times.

 

 

What? Broadway Idiot is out on Netflix Instant in the US right now? That's awesome! Yes. Yes it is.

 

 

Best new movies streaming on Netflix: May 2014

Green Day's "American Idiot" was an unlikely inspiration for a Broadway show but the musical was a success, running for 422 performances. This behind-the-scenes documentary offers a look at Billie Joe Armstrong and the development process

 

 

People of the World - we've teamed up with Vimeo so that you can watch Broadway Idiot WHEREVER YOU ARE. The UK and Australia streams will go live later this year. Everyone else can watch the film RIGHT NOW at vimeo.com/ondemand/broadwayidiotmovie

Tonight's TV picks: 'Green Day on Broadway' brings hysteria to Showtime

 

WATCH THIS:

  • "Broadway Idiot: Green Day on Broadway" (8 p.m., Showtime): Can you hear the sound of hysteria? This documentary follows rocker Billie Joe Armstrong as he works with collaborators to transform the band's landmark album, "American Idiot," into a raucous Broadway musical.

Pretty amazing documentary!! :D Though it's a shame us Aussies will have to wait a long while until we actually get the show down here :(

 

Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but I just wanted to point out the fact that Billie's portion of his St. Jimmy performance seems to be overdubbed. Possibly from studio vocals, rehearsal performance, or even another show. Watch carefully and you'll notice it's not quite in sync (not counting the obvious parts cut together from another night), and many natural performance sounds such as body impacts, grunts, etc are omitted. Use this audience video as a comparison:

 

 

I work with A/V editing for a profession, so edits like this easily catch my attention. I'm not sure why the filmmakers chose to do it this way though. I would have much preferred the real live audio. It's Billie Joe we're dealing with here! Rarely a bad live performance :P

 

What are your thoughts? And can anyone prove me wrong?

 

EDIT:

 

OK so I got really curious and decided to do some technical comparisons.

 

I took the isolated vocals of St. Jimmy from the American Idiot album. Since the Broadway Idiot version has a faster tempo, I time-stretched it to match the tempo of the album. Have a listen to what they sound like played together:

 

Broadway is on the left channel and AI is on the right.

 

https://soundcloud.c...immy-comparison

 

Sounds like a 100% match. Unless Billie Joe can sing exactly the same every single time.

 

This is just a fun little experiment I did. Please don't think I have a negative attitude about the whole thing :)
