American Idiot

Green Day’s explosive, Tony Award-winning Broadway rock musical American Idiot gets its premiere in the UK with a major national tour featuring a thrilling American tour cast, culminating in a run at London’s legendary hmv Hammersmith Apollo.

American Idiot features music by Grammy Award-winning rock band Green Day, with lyrics by lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong.

Based on the concept album of the same name, American Idiot tells the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Their quest for true meaning in a post 9/11 world leads them on an exhilarating journey.

Green Day formed in 1987 and have recorded eight albums, selling over 65 million records worldwide. The musical features hit songs by the band including Boulevard Of Broken Dreams, Wake Me Up When September Ends and Holiday.

Audience members aged 14 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
