Actor and Musical Theatre star Tom Milner along with band members from the UK and Ireland tour of American Idiot Nick Kent, Chris George and Rob Wicks, have released a unique cover version of Green Day’s ‘Wake me up When September Ends’ in a bid to raise funds for the NHS.

Tom says “In this very strange time of lockdown we really felt like we wanted to help raise money for our fantastic NHS to support them through this crisis. The American Idiot tour finished not so long ago and I still keep in regular contact with the boys from the band as they’re now very good friends , we decided that we would like to create  our own version of  the Green Day Classic ‘Wake Me Up When September Ends’.  We hope people will donate to the NHS and also take the positive messages from the song to bring a bit of light into this time of crisis’ 

You can watch ‘Wake Me Up when Covid Ends’ on You Tube https://youtu.be/8tOKNtJaeZ8 or on Facebook Facebook.com/AmericanIdiotUK  From 5pm on Monday 20 April  and make donations at https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/nhscharities-covid19urgentappeal

 Vocals from Tom Milner with Nick Kent (Bass), Chris George (Guitar) and Rob Wicks (Piano).
