    LETTER TO ALL OF OUR FANS
    July 05, 2010

    We wanted to let all of our Italian fans know that we are very disappointed that we were not able to perform last night at the Heineken Festival in Venice. For those that do not know, a very bad thunder storm hit the festival about 30 minutes before we were scheduled to play. The storm was insane! Thunder, lightning, hail and the hardest rain we have ever seen! The storm only lasted a little over an hour but the flooding and damage to the stage and sound system were severe. As the techs were attempting to make repairs the fire brigade and city safety officials made the call that the show was cancelled. We stayed on site at the festival until late in the evening hoping that we could find a way to still play.  This was not the way we wanted to end our tour! We love our fans and love Italy! We are just as disappointed as all of our fans that the show was cancelled." - Green Day
