Lenny Kravitz to replace Green Day at Distillery concert

There's a reason why Green Day croons about waking up when September ends. Apparently this month is full of disappointment because yesterday the American band announced they'd be cancelling their upcoming Toronto concert.

The show, however, must go on and Lenny Kravitz will be filling in on Friday night. Green Day was supposed to headline a concert at the World Cup of Hockey Fan Village on Friday, September 23. Tickets were $25 and sold out pretty quickly.

Ticket holders have the option of either getting a refund or seeing Kravitz rock out on Friday night. At press time, there are no additional tickets available, but some may go on sale later this week, particularly if current ticket holders opt for refunds.

Along with cancelling their Toronto show, Green Day postponed three other shows - in St. Louis, Chicago and Detroit - due to illness.
