American rock band Green Day are to return to Scotland next year after a previous concert was cancelled due to bad weather.

Billie Joe Armstrong and his band’s gig at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow in 2017 was halted just hours before they were due to take to the stage.

They will now return to the same venue on June 24 2020 as part of the Hella Mega tour.

Organisers DF Concerts said in a statement: “With three of the biggest acts in rock music set to make their return to Glasgow, the show will be an unmissable part of Scotland’s summer of live music.”
