Green Day Receive Backlash From Fans After Last Minute Show Cancelation

Over their social media, fans expressed disappointment over Green Day’s sudden show cancellation at Electric Ballroom in London.

A few days ago, the band announced a surprise gig and then performed an intimate show at a pub in Covent Garden. The London concert was a small event in Green Day’s Hella Tiny tour. However, despite fans queuing outside, Green Day posted on social media that the show was canceled. The band wrote:

“London, unfortunately, tonight’s show has been canceled due to an unexpected illness. We’re truly bummed about this and apologize for any inconvenience caused. Ticket refunds will be processed automatically next week. We’ll see you back again on The Saviors Tour, if not sooner.”

Disappointment And Frustration Voiced Online

Following the news, fans gathered in the comment section to voice their discontent. One of them said, sharing their experiences of waiting in the queue:

“The audacity of canceling just as doors were due to open was just so disrespectful to fans. Thankfully, we didn’t travel from too far, but in the couple of hours in the queue, we chatted to people from Germany & Newcastle who spent hundreds getting there for the show. Livid.”

Fans Express Anger Over Timing

Another one wrote, complaining about why the cancellation was announced so late:

“I can accept if someone is ill. But to leave so late, we were in the queue outside. The decent thing to do is reschedule and honor the tickets. I don’t want a refund. Already taken time off work, booked hotel, travel, etc.”

One other fan was again frustrated about the timing, as they noted:

“No not okay! I’m sorry, but you tell people at 18:56 when doors open at 19:00?! If you were that ill you would have known earlier. All those people that sat and waited to find out if they’d gotten tickets to your show! Paid for transport to get to the venue?! It’s disappointing.”

Green Day is currently touring Europe with small-scale concerts to promote their new album, ‘Saviors‘, which is scheduled to be released on January 19, 2024. The band also recently revealed plans for a 2024 stadium tour, including a performance at London’s Wembley Stadium scheduled for June.
