Green Day has canceled a concert set to take place on May 29 in Moscow, telling fans, “we feel it is necessary.”

The move comes amid Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine, although the band was quick to tell fans they hope to return in the future.

“With heavy hearts, in light of current events we feel it is necessary to cancel our upcoming show in Moscow at Spartak Stadium,” Green Day told fans via Instagram.

“We are aware that this moment is not about stadium rock shows, it’s much bigger than that,” the band continued. “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.”

The band finished by telling fans to “stay safe.”


AJR also canceled their Russian tour date, originally scheduled for October 22 and last week the Eurovision Song Contest revealed Russia will be banned from participating in this year’s competition.
