Green Day cancel stadium concert in Moscow due to Russia-Ukraine conflict

Green Day have canceled an upcoming stadium show in Moscow in protest of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The band had been set to play a concert at Spartak Stadium in Moscow on May 27th. However in a statement, Green Day confirmed they were canceling the gig.

Green Day’s statement read: “With heavy hearts, in light of current events we feel it is necessary to cancel our upcoming show in Moscow at Spartak Stadium. We are aware that this moment is not about stadium rock shows, it’s much bigger than that. But we also know that rock and roll is forever and we feel confident there will be a time and a place for us to return in the future. Stay safe.”
