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 East Yorkshire to mark the show’s 10th anniversary and the 15th anniversary of the Grammy Award winning album.
The special anniversary tour will be at Bridlington Spa Tuesday 7 to Saturday 11 May 2019.
The show, which has won two Tony Awards and and a Grammy, was previously showing for 5-days at Bridlington Spa in June 2016 and starred Newton Faulkner and X-Factor finalist, Amelia Lilly.
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.
This story of youthful disillusion and mistrust of society and government has never been more current; particularly with the modern parallels in the USA where school children have mobilised to form an impressive campaign for gun law reform.
The musical’s hit songs include “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and the blockbuster title track “American Idiot” from Green Day’s 2004 Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum album. Also included are several songs from Green Day’s 2009 release “21st Century Breakdown,” and an unreleased love song, “When It’s Time.”
The new cast is set to be announced over the coming months. Tickets are now on general sale and available online at bridspa.com or by calling 01262 678258.
