Green Day American Idiot Musical Tour Dates

The Tony Award winning musical American Idiot will have its UK premiere at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton next October before embarking on a short tour with the US cast which finishes at the Hammersmith Apollo in December. It is hoped a West End transfer may then be on the cards.

American Idiot features the songs of one of the influential rock band Green Day with hit songs include Boulevard of Broken Dreams, 21 Guns, Wake Me Up When September Ends, Holiday and American Idiot from Green Day’s 2004 Grammy award-winning album of the same name.

It is about three disaffected young men, Johnny, Will, and Tunny. Johnny and Tunny flee stifling suburbia and their parents’ restrictions to look for the freedom and excitement of the city while Will stays home to work out his relationship with his pregnant girlfriend. Tunny gives up on life in the city and joins the military while Johnny finds a part of himself that he grows to dislike, has a relationship and experiences lost love.

With a book by lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong and Tony award-winning director Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), who also co-directs with British Olivier winner and choreographer Steven Hoggett.
