Shortly after his 1997 move to NYC, he took a detour into rock-based theater, starring on Broadway in RENT (Mark, Roger), Jesus Christ Superstar (Judas Iscariot) and Green Day's American Idiot (St. Jimmy). He played Simon Zealotes in Andrew Lloyd Webber's film remake of Jesus Christ Superstar, and is also featured in the film Andrew Lloyd Webber: Masterpiece. Vincent originated the role of Galileo Figaro in the rock band Queen's We Will Rock You in London's West End (2002), and opened the U.S. production in 2004. He also fronted the band itself, performing "Bohemian Rhapsody" for Queen Elizabeth II, with a live audience of over 1 million people surrounding Buckingham Palace.
Vincent independently released two more albums, A Better Way, produced by Adam Anders (Glee) in 2008, and the self-produced In My Head in 2012, following his appearance on NBC's The Voice.
Tony Vincent is currently headlining the North American symphony tour of The Music of David Bowie, and working as a record producer at his Nashville recording studio, Soundshop 370.
