Say hello to St. Jimmy, Whatsername and the rest one more time.

Green Day's 'American Idiot' musical will return to the UK in 2019.

It's to celebrate 15 years of the original record, and 10 years of the musical.

The musical "is the story of three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post 9/11 world."

"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 musical has had Green Day fans in rapture and introduced a generation of theatregoers to their powerful and moving musical style."
