Fresh from a critically acclaimed West End run and a sell-out UK Tour, Green Day’s explosive Tony Award-winning rock musical, American Idiot the Musical will play Auckland’s Civic Theatre this October.
Featuring the legendary music of Green Day with the lyrics of its lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong, American Idiot the Musical is the story of three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post 9/11 world. This is a story of youthful disillusion and the mistrust of society and government, a sentiment that has never been more current, both abroad and locally. This theme was evidenced in New Zealand recently by the mobilisation of tens of thousands of school-aged Kiwis protesting climate change.
The musical contains the band’s hit songs including ‘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 featured are several songs from Green Day’s 2009 release ‘21st Century Breakdown’, and an unreleased love song, ‘When It’s Time’.
