Green Day have revealed the American Idiot musical will be a moving affair.
The musical version of the US band's Grammy-winning album will be unleashed on Broadway on April 20, and frontman Billie Joe Armstrong told MTV.com: "It's a record that's coming to life, it's in your face.
"It's a great story, and it's going to move you. That's what American Idiot does - that's what it does in the music, and that's what it's going to do onstage."
The show, which also features songs from their album 21st Century Breakdown and some of their B-sides, is already expected to cause some controversy.
"You know, it is real life - there is a saying that if theatre is life and movies are entertainment, then television is furniture," said bassist Mike Dirnt.
