Complete Audio of Davey's Broadway Debut Surfaces

Complete audio of Davey's debut performance in American Idiot has surfaced!

As we have said we won't be posting bootlegs (Good Riddance is from American Idiot, a board recording), so if you want to get the recording of Davey's debut you will have to go to Megaupload and download the file. Tumblr user Sarah posted it!

Pablo's edit: For those of you wondering, Davey sings on "St. Jimmy", "Last of The American Girls/She's a Rebel", "Last Night on Earth", "Know Your Enemy", "Homecoming" and "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life". As for the recording's quality, I'd give it 6.5/10.
