Greenday Cancels Remaining Tour and Postpones Early 2013 Stops
With the recent “breakdown” of front man Billie Joe Armstrong and his recovery in rehab, the band has postponed the rest of their tour in 2012 and their 2013 stops for the release of their new albums.
“Obviously the timing for this isn’t ideal, but Billie Joe’s well-being is our main concern,” said Mike Dirnt. “We are happy to say that Billie Joe is doing well, and we want to thank you all for the outpouring of support and well wishes that we have received, and we can’t wait to see you all again soon.
“We feel bad we have to delay our tour, so to make up for it we want to give our fans the music earlier than we had planned,” said Tré Cool. “If we couldn’t be there to play it for you live, the least we could do was give you the next best thing.”
Greenday was scheduled to play the 1STBANK Center in February but no reschedule day has been announced yet.
