As rock fans have no doubt been fearing for a couple of weeks, American Idiot musicians Green Day have postponed their upcoming Hong Kong performance.

They issued a statement through promoters Lushington Entertainment today:

"We have unfortunately made the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming shows in Asia due to the health + travel concerns with coronavirus.

"We know it sucks, as we were looking forward to seeing you all, but hold on to your tickets we’ll be announcing the new dates very soon."

Current tickets purchased through HK Ticketing (Hong Kong) will remain valid for the rescheduled date. We are actively working with the band management on the rescheduled date and we will endeavour to announce the date very soon.

Meanwhile, here's one of the band's latest music videos, starring Stranger Things actor Gaten Matarazzo.
