Press Night: 24 January 2019 – Southampton Mayflower Theatre
Following two critically acclaimed and celebrated West End runs and a sell-out UK Tour, Green Day’s explosive Tony Award winning rock musical, American Idiot, returns to mark the show’s 10th anniversary and the 15th anniversary of the Grammy Award winning album. The special anniversary tour opens from 17 January 2019 at the Grove Theatre, Dunstable, with press night at the Mayflower Theatre, Southampton on Thursday 24 January.
Winner of two Tony Awards and the 2010 Grammy Award winner for Best Musical Show Album, American Idiot is the story of three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post 9/11 world. The show, which premiered in December 2009 at Berkeley Rep Theatre, features the music of Green Day with the lyrics of its lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong and book by Billie Joe Armstrong and Michael Mayer.
