Green Day Postpone Start Of Tour Due To Illness
Green Day’s upcoming fall tour has turned into some of the most anticipated rock shows for the rest of the year, but unfortunately, it isn’t going to be starting exactly when it’s supposed to. The band sent out an update to announce the postponement and cancellation of a couple of opening dates on the tour, due to illnesses within the band and the crew.
They wrote in a statement about how sad they were to postpone and cancel, but the infection that they’ve been battling got the best of them. The dates that will be postponed include stops in St. Louis, Chicago, and Detroit, while the cancelled date is Toronto. Their Toronto show was actually supposed to be a performance at the World Cup of Hockey Fan Village, so it makes sense that it isn’t possible to reschedule something like that. Either way, best wishes go out to the band, and hopefully they can get back on stage soon performing at full strength.
This upcoming fall tour for Green Day is a big one, as the band will be touring around North America and playing smaller club venues instead of their usual big time arenas to support their upcoming album, Revolution Radio, which is out on October 7th.
