Green Day was forced to cancel their set at the legendary Glastonbury festival on Tuesday, just hours before they were supposed to take the stage. Promoters cite inclement weather as the reason for the cancellation. They said “adverse weather” conditions make it “no longer safe” for the band or fans.
The following was posted on Green Day’s official website in response to the cancellation:
“Glasgow, we are very sad to report that our show today at Bellahouston Park has been cancelled. The local safety council, production crew, and concert organizers have deemed the stage unsafe for the fans and everyone involved. We are very distraught about this as we are in Glasgow now and were very much looking forward to this show as one the highlights of our tour. We have been playing in extreme weather conditions throughout this European tour, and the last thing we want to do is see a show cancelled. We love our Scottish fans and we don’t care if its raining fucking sideways, although the safety of our fans and our crew is always our top priority. We love you Scotland, we love the city of Glasgow and it goes without saying that WE WILL BE BACK!”
