THE incredibly successful chart-topping Green Day album, American Idiot, has been turned into a stage musical and is set to wow audiences in Manchester this winter.
The performance will be on at the Palace Theatre from November 12-24.
It tells the story of three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post 9/11 world.
American Idiot features the music of Green Day including popular well-known songs such as Boulevard Of Broken Dreams, Wake Me Up When September Ends, and Holiday, as well as the blockbuster title track from Green Day’s 2004 Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum album.
Green Day frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong, said: “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, and we can’t wait for our friends across the pond to see the musical.”
American Idiot is already the winner of two Tony Awards and a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.
