GLASGOW, Scotland (CelebrityAccess) — American pop-punk band Green Day canceled a planned July 4th show in Glasgow's Bellahouston Park at the last minute, citing weather concerns and production issues.
Promoter PCL Presents announced the cancellation via their social media, tweeting: "We are sorry to inform you that due to adverse weather conditions it is no longer safe for the bands to perform on stage and unfortunately today's show will be canceled. Tickets will be refunded from point of purchase within ten working days."
"After a cold [and] rainy start, there were just too many issues with the stage," crew member Steve Lagudi told the Daily Record. "Missing half the PA and the local crew being way behind, the show has been canceled. Bummer."
Not all fans took the news of the last-minute cancellation well, with many taking to social media to vent their frustration.
We arrived safely, paid for parking, paid for our hotel, and at 13:45 received an e-mail to say that the concert has been canceled," Lincolnshire resident Charlotte Duncan told the BBC.
"The hotel won't reimburse us as there is a 72-hour notice period. We will be staying there for one night only as we just came for the concert. We're not really sure how to pass the time now.
"We could have saved our money," she added.
