Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong was forced to withdraw from his appearance at Miley Cyrus’ New Years Eve party due to exposure to the coronavirus.
The NBC special, which will be hosted by Midnight Sky actor and comedian Pete Davidson, will feature performances by artists including Saweetie, Jack Harlow, Brandi Carlile, Anitta and more.
Rocker Wake Me Up When September Ends was among the special guests confirmed to perform, but has now decided it was best not to travel after coming into contact with someone who has contracted the virus despite testing negative.
Taking to Instagram Stories to share the disappointing news, he wrote: ‘After the holidays I found out I was exposed to COVID.
«I have tested negative, but I made the decision not to travel to Miami for the New Year’s Eve party as a precaution.
‘Happy New Year and I hope everyone is safe!’

The network has yet to announce a replacement for Green Day, but promised that more surprise guests will appear on the show, which will air live from Miami starting at 10:30 pm in the US.
Miley’s highly anticipated concert will replace Carson Daly’s New Years Eve special, and she and Kim Kardashian’s rumored new boyfriend Pete apparently go back after they both revealed they used to have matching tattoos.
The couple appeared in a sketch on Saturday Night Live in 2017 as rapping babies and decided to get matching tattoos in memory of the sketch.
Miley said: ‘We were dressed like babies, everything seemed fun and good. For some reason, we look at each other and think, “It’s a great tattoo… we’re doing it.”

‘He’s drinking Smartwater and laser-removing his tattoos … and I’m like,’ wait a minute, that’s where the babies were, ‘he said as he showed the ink on his foot, and Pete then showed the faded design on his wrist .
‘They are not babies,’ he joked.
Miley’s New Years Eve party will air on December 31 from 10:30 pm to 12:30 am on NBC in the US.
