Green Day: American Idiot musical heads to Europe

Green Day’s “American Idiot” musical will tour the UK in late 2012.

The performance will visit eight cities on a tour that begins next October.

Things kick off October 9 at Southampton's Mayflower Theatre, and run until early December, with a final week-long stint at London's HMV Hammersmith Apollo. The musical will also have a two-week long run at Manchester's Palace Theatre.

The show is based around songs from Green Day's last two studio albums, “American Idiot” and “21st Century Breakdown.”

A feature film version of the musical, which is being produced by Tom Hanks, is currently in development.

Tickets for the 2012 UK tour will go on sale Friday, December 9 at 10am (GMT).
