Green Day cancels 2012 dates, postpones 2013 tour

The fallout from Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong’s current rehab stint continues.

Last month, the band ceased all live and promotional appearances in support of “¡Uno!” following an onstage meltdown by Billie Joe in Las Vegas. Green Day initially cancelled a club show in San Francisco as well as a headlining slot at the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans this past weekend, which was filled in by Bay Area pals Metallica.

On Monday, Green Day announced they will cancel their club tour that was due to launch in Seattle at the Paramount Theatre on November 26th and wind down in Tempe, AZ at the Marquee Theatre on December 10th. Tickets for these clubs shows will be refunded at point of purchase.

The band has also postponed all scheduled appearances for the months of January and February 2013. New dates for these rescheduled shows will be announced shortly and previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new dates.

“Obviously the timing for this isn’t ideal, but Billie Joe’s well-being is our main concern,” said bassist 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."

Green Day also announced they would move up the release date of “¡Tré!” to December 11, 2012 from its original date of January 15, 2013.

“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 drummer 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.”
