A tenth anniversary tour of rock musical American Idiot, with music by multi Grammy award-winning band Green Day visits Liverpool Playhouse July 9–13.

It features hit songs from the band including "Boulevard of Broken Dreams", "21 Guns", "Wake Me Up When September Ends", "Holiday" and the title track.

American Idiot follows three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post-9/11 world. A story of youthful disillusion and mistrust, the production draws parallels with the USA, where school children have mobilised to form a campaign for gun law reform.
