US band Green Day cancels concert in Manila this year

January 18 ------ Two months after the cancellation of Billie Eillish’s concert this year, another concert is not pushing through due to the ongoing pandemic. American rock band Green Day, who had to reschedule their concert in the country last year, has decided to cancel their concert scheduled for this coming March, according to their local concert organizer MMI Live.

On their social media account, the organizer posted the update last January 15, Friday. “Green Day Live in Manila scheduled on March 13, 2021 is no longer able to take place. Customers who have purchased tickets may contact SM tickets at for refund. While it was not possible to reschedule the tour at this time, the band hopes to see their fans in Asia in the near future. Thanks for your patience and understanding.”

Known as one of the early ‘90s punk group and a Hall-of-Fame rock band, Green Day was formed in California in 1987 by lead vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong and bassist and backing vocalist Mike Dirnt. The award-winning Broadway musical American Idiot is based on their 2004 album of the same name.
