Green Day’s American Idiot musical is finally coming to Australia, complete with a soon-to-be-announced all-Aussie cast and directed by Australian award-winning director Craig Ilott.

The season’s premiere will take place at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, South Brisbane on February 23.

Written by the band’s Billie Joe Armstrong and Tony Award winner Michael Mayer, American Idiot tells the story of three friends and their self-discovery journey in a post-9/11 world. The rock musical will also feature songs from the albums American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown.

Tickets will be on sale from 9am this Friday, October 28.

Green Day will also come to Australia for their Revolution Radio tour from April-May.
