And we think you guys are going to enjoy it!

It was announced today by the producers of the Tony-Award winning musical that American Idiot will tour in the UK in the new year. The show will start in Southampton in October 2012 and then tour across the UK and Ireland, before closing at London's Hammersmith Apollo.

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong:

"We're excited to be bringing the US stage production of American Idiot to the UK and Ireland. We played to some of the most insane crowds when we toured the album there, and we can't wait for our friends across the pond to see the musical."

Tickets will go on sale next week, but no word yet if Billie will be joining in on the tour. Chances are good though!

Rock On! American Idiot Optioned By Playtone Productions!


Tom Hanks and Billie Joe Armstrong! Who knew!

Though some other studios were actively pursuing the rights to the musical, in turns out that Tom's Playtone Productions will be producing the stage-to-film adaptation of American Idiot.

The details are still in the works, but Michael Mayer who direct the stage verision will return as the helmer for the film and Green Day frontman Billie Joe will reprise his Broadway role as St. Jimmy.

Hell! At this rate, why not just get the entire orginal stage crew and cast to come back! Might as well!

FYI - Playtone also has the rights to Spring Awakening. How busy are you at the moment, Lea Michele??? LOLZ!
