Green Day’s 2021 Asia tour dates in Manila, Singapore, Taiwan, Bangkok and Seoul have been cancelled.
Manila promoter MMI Live, Singapore promoter Lushington Entertainments and Live Nation – the promoter in Bangkok, Taiwan and Seoul – announced the cancellation of the band’s shows in the three countries today (January 15).
Green Day were due to kick off the Asia tour – already postponed from 2020 – in Manila on March 13, moving onto Taipei on March 16, Bangkok on March 21 and Seoul on March 24. They would then wrap up the tour in Singapore on April 1.
Both MMI Live and Live Nation 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 should contact ticketing agent SM Tickets for refunds.
Live Nation Asia has also cancelled ticket sales for Green Day’s concerts in the Japanese cities of Chiba (March 26 and 27) and Osaka (March 29), according to its website.
Green Day’s tour of the region in support of their latest album ‘Father Of All…’ was initially due to take place in all the selected Asian cities in March 2020. But the band postponed the tour on February 28 due to the coronavirus pandemic, announcing rescheduled dates a month later.
