Green Day musical comes to London after UK tour
Date Posted: 02/12/11
Green Day's American Idiot musical will play in London's West End after enjoying a UK tour, it has been announced.
Having entertained audiences on Broadway, the production will now come to these shores and those booking London theatre breaks will be able to see it in the capital at the end of next year.
It will take up a short residence at the London HMV Hammersmith Apollo between Monday 3rd and Saturday 8th December.
The show is based around the songs which were featured on Green Day's last two studio albums, titled American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown.
Frontman of Green Day, Billie Joe Armstrong, said: "We can't wait for our friends across the pond to see the musical. We're excited to be bringing the US stage production of American Idiot to the UK and Ireland. We played to some of the most insane crowds when we toured the album there."
During its UK tour, the musical will travel to Southampton, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dublin, Manchester and Birmingham.
