    Green Day musical American Idiot will extend its run at London's Arts Theatre from 29 September until 29 November 2015.

    Starring X factor finalist Amelia Lily and musical theatre star Aaron Sidwell, American Idiot received four star reviews when it opened in July.

    Alongside Lily as 'Whatsername' and Sidwell as 'Johnny', the American Idiot cast also features Luke Baker (Theo), Natasha Barnes (Heather), Alexis Gerred (Tunny), Llandyll Gove (Gerard), Raquel Jones (Extraordinary Girl), Natasha Karp (Alysha), Robyn Mellor (Libby), Lucas Rush (St. Jimmy), Steve Rushton (Will), and Ross William Wild (Joshua).

    Boasting the music of Green Day's iconic album with the lyrics of its lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong and book by Armstrong and Michael Mayer, American Idiot tells the story of three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post 9-11 world.

    During its Broadway run, American Idiot won two Tony Awards® and the 2010 Grammy Award winner for Best Musical Show Album.

    Its hit songs include “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and the blockbuster title track “American Idiot” from Green Day’s 2004 Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum album. Also included are several songs from Green Day’s 2009 release “21st Century Breakdown,” and an unreleased love song, “When It’s Time.”

    American Idiot is now booking until Sunday 29 November 2015 at London's Arts Theatre.
