Following two critically acclaimed West End runs and a sell-out UK Tour, Green Day's  rock musical American Idiot is returning to mark the show's 10th anniversary and the 15th anniversary of the Grammy Award winning original album. The new tour is being presented by  Selladoor Productions producers of Flashdance, Fame, Avenue Q and Little Shop of Horrors.
