Green Day UK gig axed over ‘ex­treme’ rain

Midweek Sport - - #HOT'N'HORNY -

A GIG by Amer­i­can rock band Green Day was can­celled last night due to bad weather, just hours be­fore they were due on stage.

The con­cert in Glas­gow’s Bel­la­hous­ton Park was deemed un­safe af­ter a del­uge of heavy rain.

The band said they were “dis­traught” at hav­ing to pull out of the gig, as they have pre­vi­ously played in “ex­treme weather” dur­ing the rest of their Euro­pean tour.

In a state­ment, front­man Bil­lie Joe Arm­strong ( above) said: “We have been play­ing in ex­treme weather con­di­tions through­out this Euro­pean tour, and the last thing we want to do is see a show can­celled.

“We love our Scot­tish fans and we don’t care if it’s rain­ing. We love you Scot­land, we love the city of Glas­gow and it goes with­out say­ing that we will be back!”

The con­cert would have been the first time the Amer­i­can Idiot trio would have played in the city in seven years. YOU have no sense of smell when you are asleep.
