American Idiot

The San Fran punks who became multi-million rock gods bring their American Idiot album-as-a-musical to the UK for a nationwide tour and short London run at the Apollo.

The duo have an ambitious three-piece record coming out this month, November and January, but it is back to their 2004 chart-topper for this tale of punk singalongs and socio-political observations. Rock on!

Hammersmith Apollo, £22.50
Dec 4-16. 7pm
W6 9QH 
Tube | Hammersmith

Africa Express

Damon Albarn – musical chameleon, Gallagher baiter, occasional Blur frontman – dons his experimental hat for this evening’s show.

Birthed as a reaction to Live 8’s sleb-spotted posturing, Africa Express brings together artists from the continent that fascinates Geldof for an evening of jamming and spontaneous musical output. 

The line–up’s to die for – Amadou and Mariam, Kano, Noisettes, Jack Steadman – and intent on broadening your musical boundaries. 

Sept 8. 5pm, £20
Granary Square, N1C 4AA
Tube | King’s Cross

Cabaret

The unsettling musical from Rufus Norris, based on Kander and Ebb’s classic, itself based on the novel by Christopher Isherwood, stars Will Young as the impressionable emcee at a cabaret club in Berlin at the end of Weimar German Republic.

The tale of sex, love and the rise of fascism makes for a thrillingly perverse melting pot, and is sure to see Young shake off his boy band days.

Oct 3-Jan 19. Times vary, £35+
Savoy Theatre, WC2R 0ET
Tube | Charing Cross

Until Sept 29. Times vary, £32
Savoy Theatre, WC2R 0ET
Tube | Temple
