Fresh from sell-out performances in 2017, Green Day’s explosive, award-winning Broadway phenomenon American Idiot returns to rock QPAC’s Playhouse from 13 April 2018!

Winner of two Tony Awards® and the 2010 Grammy® Award winner for Best Musical Show Album, American Idiot is the story of three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post 9/11, Trumpian-suburbia. The show 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.

This thrilling new musical has had Green Day fans in rapture and introduced a generation of theatregoers to their powerful and moving musical style. So come and discover what all the noise is about!

The high-octane Brisbane season will include an all-Australian cast featuring Phil Jamieson2 (Grinspoon) and Sarah McLeod (The Superjesus)2 and includes every song from Green Day’s album American Idiot, as well as several songs from follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown.
