Green Day’s American Idiot musical is touring the UK in 2019

Calling out to idiot America...

Green Day‘s American Idiot musical will be taken on a UK tour next year, to celebrate 15 years since the release of the seminal album.

Debuting in 2010, the musical tells the story of Johnny, a disaffected teen living in Jingletown, USA. The show is sound-tracked by the entire album, along with tracks from Dookie and 2009’s 21st Century Breakdown.

Now, it’s been announced that audiences across the UK will get the chance to see the show once more, with an extensive tour beginning in Dunstable on Thursday January 17 before finishing in June.

Meanwhile, Green Day are believed to be working on a big screen adaptation of American Idiot.

In 2016, Armstrong told NME that progress is well underway with the project, that HBO were behind it and that he’d be reprising his own Broadway role as the character St. Jimmy.

“That’s the plan right now, yeah,” said Armstrong.

 “We’ve got a green light from HBO, and the script is currently going through a couple of rewrites here and there, so I’m not sure when exactly we’re going to start shooting, but it’s definitely all systems go at the moment.”
