Watch The American Idiot Cast Perform A Green Day Medley
The UK cast of Green Day’s epic American Idiot musical have shared a new band medley for charity.
Supporting The Barn Theatre and The Ben Kinsella Trust in this time of uncertainty for theatres, the cast of both the West End production and the UK tour regrouped remotely to perform songs from the musical such as Boulevard Of Broken Dreams, Holiday and Whatsername to raise money for charity, following on from the original Broadway cast’s lockdown performance of 21 Guns for the show’s 10th anniversary in April.

“I wanted to utilise the incredible talent and creativity of my Idiotic friends during a time of such uncertainty in the performing industry,” says organiser Alexis Gerred. “This is a chance to help bring awareness, funds and hope to charities and fundraisers that mean a lot to us… but ultimately if this medley just puts a smile on someone’s face, then that is also job done. We all need something to smile about at the moment and reconnecting with my friends to create this has been hugely rewarding. We are Idiots forever. Enjoy.
“Please check out The Ben Kinsella Trust and The Barn Theatre who are such worthy causes, in very different ways.”
