Green Day Play A Festival After Someone Dies

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has released a statement following the death of an acrobat prior to their set at the 2017 Mad Cool Festival this weekend in Spain. Pedro Aunión Monroy plunged to his death in front of concertgoers while doing an aerial stunt before the band hit the stage. “We are so sad for Pedro and his family and we pray for them in this time of grief,” Billie wrote. “Many of you are wondering why we continued to play our show after the accident. Green Day did not hear about the accident until after our show was over,” he said. “If we had known prior to our performance we most likely would not have played at all,” Billie said. “We are not heartless people. The safety and well being at any of our concerts absolutely comes first. What happened to Pedro is unthinkable."
