Bad news for fans of the California-bred pop-punk outfit Green Day as the band has just announced the cancellation of their “secret show” which was originally scheduled for this Friday.
The band announced that they were unable to attain the necessary permits for the event as they were denied by the city of Burbank due to concerns about crowd control.
Billboard had reported that Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong tweeted about the gig last week, writing “Green day Surprise rock n roll sex party show meaning "secret show" coming soon in LA AREA. Stay tuned! Clothing optional! Dance or fuck off. And it's FREE. Bring your own booze. Weirdos and punishers welcomed!"
Armstrong then added, "For the upcoming green day dance party, there will be extra space. There's no such thing as too many friends. Chaos=love ;)”
But the show was not to be as the band now confirmed on their site "permits needed for the show were denied by the city due to crowd control issues. The anticipated turnout was well into the thousands, and after monitoring the situation, fears were the number would dramatically swell and pose serious concern for safety of concert-goers once the location was made public."
Green Day is currently prepping up to promote their recently announced upcoming triple album release which features records to be titled ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tré!.
The three albums are the follow-up to 2009’s 21st Century Breakdown and bring back long time Green Day producer Rob Cavallo. The albums will be released sequentially with the first being ¡Uno!, set for release on September 25.
