Green Day was set to perform at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow last week but due to unsafe weather conditions which wound endanger fans, crew and the band, they were forced to cancel.

While Green Day has been performing endlessly on the ‘Revolution Radio’ Tour, the recent Glasgow cancellation showed no signs of dimming their fan’s enthusiasm for the band.

Green Day’s vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong reacted to fans who gathered outside their hotel in Blythswood Square after being forced to cancel their date due to unsafe weather conditions.

Listen to fans serenade the rock icons and view Armstrong’s reaction below:

Green Day has been on tour forever.

They played over 20 shows this past Spring with Against Me!, which lead into a 3-month run of European shows.

The band’s upcoming North American tour is set to kick-off next month in Auburn, Washington at White River Amphitheatre.

Central American dates are scheduled to follow and will conclude this Fall in Mexico City at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriquez.

The East Bay punk rockers kicked off their set at Sheffield Arena in England this week with “Know Your Enemy” from their 2009 release 21st Century Breakdown, in which a fan joined in to sing the last verse.

Green Day’s 22-song-set included classics like “Holiday”, “When I Come Around”, “Welcome to Paradise” and “Basket Case”.

The band covered Operation Ivy’s “Knowledge” and played a mash-up of “Shout / Teenage Kicks / Always Look on the Bright Side of Life / (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction / Hey Jude”.

The power packed set concluded with a double encore that incorporated “American Idiot”, “Jesus of Suburbia”, and acoustic version of “21 Guns” and “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)”.
