Double Platinum selling artist Newton Faulkner joins the cast of Green Day’s explosive Tony Award winning musical, American Idiot, on its UK tour, visiting the Theatre Royal Nottingham now until Saturday June 18.

Newton will be taking on the role of Johnny. One of the UK’s finest contemporary singer-songwriters, Newton’s unique style of guitar playing and soaring vocals have made him a worldwide success since he burst onto the music scene back in 2007.

Newton will join the previously announced X Factor finalist Amelia Lily (Whatsername), Alexis Gerred (Tunny), Llandyll Gove (Gerard), Lucas Rush (St Jimmy) and Steve Rushton (Will).

Winner of two Tony Awards and the 2010 Grammy Award winner for Best Musical Show Album, American Idiot 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.

Tickets are £14 - £35. Visit www.trch.co.uk or call 0115 9895555 for tickets.
