Green Day cancels 2021 Asian tour

Promoters Live Nation, MMI Live and Lushington Entertainments have announced today (Friday) that Green Day’s 2021 Asia tour dates have been cancelled due to COVID-19.

The American punk rock band’s tour, which was already postponed in 2020, was scheduled to take place in the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and South Korea.

Green Day were due to start their Asian tour on March 13 in Manila in the Philippines, before wrapping in Singapore on April 1.

Manila promoter MMI Live and Live Nation, the promoter in Bangkok, Taiwan and Seoul, both said that “while it was not possible to reschedule the tour at this time, the band hopes to see their fans in Asia in the near future.”

Taipei, Bangkok and Singapore fans’ tickets will be automatically refunded, while Manila fans have been advised to contact ticketing agent SM Tickets for refunds. Ticket holders in Singapore will be able to get their refunds via Ticketmaster, while fans in Hong Kong will be refunded through HK Ticketing between February 1 and March 24.

Ticket holders in Thailand will be able to get their refunds at 14 ThaiTicketMajor (TTM) outlets or via TTM’s website. Ticket holders in Taiwan will be able to get their refunds from now until April 30 via Tixcraft.

Live Nation Asia has also cancelled ticket sales for Green Day’s concerts in the Japanese cities of Chiba and Osaka.

Green Day’s Asian tour in support of their latest album ‘Father Of All…’ was initially due to take place in March 2020, but was postponed on February 28 due to the coronavirus pandemic, announcing rescheduled dates a month later.
