AMERICAN Idiot, the musical based around songs from punk-pop band Green Day is coming to the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford next month.

The ground-breaking, Tony award-winning rock musical with music by the Grammy award-winning band, can be seen from June 11 to 15.

Leading the cast is Waterloo Road’s Tom Milner as Johnny, 2013’s X Factor third-place runner-up Luke Friend as St Jimmy, and 2016 X Factor finalist Sam Lavery as Whatsername.

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.

A spokesman said: “This story of youthful disillusion and mistrust of society and government has never been more current.

“This is particularly true due to 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 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 show contains strong language and drug references, and is not suitable for under-14s.
