Green Day’s award-winning Broadway musical is touring the UK in summer 2016 and will play a run of shows in Glasgow’s King’s Theatre!


American Idiot, starring X Factor finalist Amelia Lily, is going on tour after a massively successful West End run, and is coming to Glasgow’s King’s Theatre from the 31st of May until the 4th of June 2016.

Green Day’s explosive, award-winning Broadway musical American Idiot is now touring across the UK in 2016, direct from a hugely successful and critically acclaimed West End run. X Factor finalist Amelia Lily will be reprising her critically acclaimed role, Whatsername, with further casting to be announced.

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 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.

US rock band Green Day released their American Idiot album back in 2004. Inspired by epic rock operas such as Jesus Christ Superstar and The Who’s Tommy, the album soon went multi-platinum, selling over 15m copies to date and winning a Grammy for Best Rock Album. Now in 2015 they’ve been inducted in to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame confirming their reputation as one of the biggest rock music acts of the last 20 years.

This thrilling new musical has had Green Day fans in rapture and introduced a generation of theatregoers to their powerful and moving musical style. So come and discover what all the noise is about!
