Green Day’s American Idiot Musical Is Coming To Australia
It’s time to start learning the Propaganda – before Green Day come crashing Down Under with the Revolution Radio tour, their 2004 opus-turned-Broadway musical, American Idiot, is hitting your local musical hall… Well, that is if you live in Brisbane, and if your local musical hall is the Queensland Performing Arts Centre.
The 14-show residency will go down from Feb 23rd through March 5th, directed by award-winning Aussie director Craig Ilott. Ilott is best known for his work bringing Hedwig And The Angry Inch and Smoke And Mirrors to life onstage.
“It’s so rare to come across a piece as rich, stimulating and challenging as this,” Ilott says. “Ultimately, it’s a rallying cry from the heart by one of the world’s best bands.” Ilott says. “The album American Idiot redefined Green Day as a band. American Idiot: The Musical challenged what was expected of the form. And now, a new production from some of Australia’s finest young theatre makers and performers promises to breathe new life into it.”
American Idiot: The Musical follows three childhood friends searching for meaning in a world shaken by 9/11, built on the entire 13-jam tracklisting of the 2004 album, plus a handful of cuts from its follow-up, 21st Century Breakdown.
For those outside of Brisbane desperate for a Green Day fix (and can’t shell out for those sweet, sweet Jetstar flights), the band will be dropping by at the tail end of April for a string of arena shows in support of their shit hot new LP, Revolution Radio.
