Green Day Scrap Gig Over Armstrong Illness
Rockers GREEN DAY have postponed a concert in Melbourne, Australia after frontman BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG came down with a suspected bout of food poisoning.
The American Idiot hitmakers were due to perform on Tuesday (15Dec09) but they have pushed back the show until Wednesday (16Dec09) to allow Armstrong to recover from his sudden illness.
A spokesperson from concert promoter Frontier Tour Company released a statement which reads, "Although Billie Joe was determined to perform tonight it became apparent at 4.30 pm today that he would be unable to take to the stage - particularly in light of the lengthy 2.5-3 hour show the band traditionally perform."
All tickets remain valid for Wednesday night's show, but any fans unable to attend can get a refund from the original point of purchase.
