Green Day Cancels Secret Show

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (06/20/12)
Green Day is being forced to cancel the "secret" massive free show planned for this Friday in Burbank, CA.
Press StatementArrangements for this "secret" show were already under way, when 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.

I would have gone. I saw them do a secret show here in LA before American Idiot and it was amazing.

just because it wasn't announced doesn't mean that people don't know about it...

It WAS announced, Billie Joe announced it on his twitter last week, just not the location or anything. But he made it obvious it would be a bigger affair than previous secret shows. And I don't see why he would mention it at all before they even had the permits for it

FUCK ME, I was going to get to go to that. I didn't think there was anyway they could pull that one off.

Edit: I'm an intern. Can't really say more.

maybe they are saying it to throw people off. Or they could just play Warped Tour instead.
