    Green Day have canceled an upcoming stadium show in Moscow in protest of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

    The punk veterans had been set to play a concert at Spartak Stadium in Moscow on May 27th. However, in a statement released on Sunday the band said they were canceling the gig.

    “We are aware that this moment is not about stadium rock shows, it’s so much bigger than that,” Green Day said. “But we also know that rock and roll is forever and we feel confident there will be a time and a place for us to return in the future. Refunds available at the point of purchase. Stay safe.”
