Tickets go on sale tomorrow for Green Day’s American Idiot musical when it comes to Blackpool.

A special 10th anniversary tour of the show will travel the country next year, hitting the Opera House from March 5 to 9.

The tour is being staged by production company Selladoor, which was behind the Winter Gardens’ festive extravaganza Peter Pan and will present the Wizard Of Oz in December.

The punk pop-opera American Idiot is an explosive musical using the music from Green Day’s Grammy Award-winning album of the same name, which will mark its 15th anniversary next year.

It tells of three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post 9/11 world and features hit songs from the album including Boulevard of Broken Dreams, 21 Guns, Wake Me Up When September Ends, Holiday and the blockbuster title track American Idiot.

A spokesman said: “This story of youthful disillusion and mistrust of society and government has never been more current; particularly with the modern parallels in the USA where school children have mobilised to campaign for gun law reform.”

Tickets will be available on sale from 11am tomorrow, online at www.wintergardensblackpool.co.uk, or by calling the Church Street complex on 0844 856 1111.
