Green Day says they had NO that an acrobat died in a performance before their set at a music festival in Spain until AFTER they had left the stage.
In a statement posted to the band’s website on Sunday, Green Day Captain, Billie Joe Armstrong said, “We are so sad for Pedro and his family and we pray for them in this time of grief.” He went on to say that “the band was only made aware of a ‘security issue.’ We were not told any more specifics than that”, which Armstrong says is “normal”.
“We are not heartless people,” Armstrong says… “The safety and well being at any of our concerts absolutely comes first. What happened to Pedro is unthinkable. Once again we are heartbroken for his friends and family. We are also shocked and heartbroken for anyone that had to witness this tragedy.”
