MANILA, Philippines – Heads up, Green Day fans! The punk rock band has announced a new date for its first-ever Manila show – which is now set to happen on March 13, 2021.
Green Day was initially set to perform at the Mall of Asia Arena on March 14 as a stop on their Asian tour to promote their latest album, Father of All…. They postponed the tour in February amid the heightening coronavirus crisis.
In a Twitter post on April 2, they posted the rescheduled dates, showing Manila as their first stop. They will also be heading to Taipei, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Seoul, Tokyo, Osaka, and Singapore as part of the tour.
“Hold on to your tickets – they’ll be good for the new shows,” they said, advising those who can’t make it to the new dates to contact their point of purchase for a full refund. In Manila, tickets were sold through SM Tickets.
