Where to see American Idiot the musical? How to get tickets

Green Day inspired musical is touring the UK in 2019

American Idiot is returning for massive UK tour in 2019, celebrating the show's 10th anniversary, and 15 years since the release of the award winning, multi-million selling album. Tickets for the show's performances in Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham, Brighton, Wimbledon and Glasgow go on sale at 10am on Fri 6 Apr, through ATG.

The tour kicks off at Dunstable's Grove Theatre on Thu 17 Jan, with the show running across the country throughout the first half of 2019, taking in shows at Edinburgh Playhouse, Manchester's Palace Theatre, Birmingham's New Alexandra Theatre and Glasgow's Kings Theatre.

Based on the Green Day album of the same name, American Idiot is the story of three childhood friends, searching for meaning and identity in a post 9/11 world of conflict and aggression. It's a tale that feels especially relevant in the context of America today, where school children are standing up to protest against gun violence, demanding change.

Included in the musical are the hit songs 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams', 'Wake Me Up When September Ends' and 'Holiday' and the album's title track 'American Idiot' itself. Tracks from the album's follow up 21st Century Breakdown like '21 Guns' are featured too.

The full cast is still to be announced; but American Idiot is not to be missed, especially for fans of Green Day and their rousing, anthemic music.
