Green Day have announced that they have canceled their remaining shows for 2012 due to vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong's current rehab stay. Additionally, 2013 appearances through January and February will be postponed and rescheduled. Tickets will be refunded for the canceled shows and old tickets will be honored at the rescheduled events.
“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.”
The band have also announced that they have moved up the release date for ¡Tre! from January 15, 2013 to December 11, 2012.
“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.”
