Green Day Cancels Remainder of 2012 Shows

Share on Tumblr

The bad news just keeps coming for Green Day fans: The band has canceled all their remaining 2012 shows, in addition to their January and February tour dates.

In late September, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong entered a rehabilitation facility following an onstage meltdown of sorts at the I Heart Radio music festival in Las Vegas, Nev. As a result, a string of dates and festival appearances (such as this past weekend's Voodoo Experience in New Orleans) were canceled.

"Obviously the timing for this isn't ideal, but Billie Joe's well-being is our main concern," said bassist Mike Dirnt in a statement released to press. "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."

Originally, Green Day was scheduled for a West Coast tour starting Nov. 26 in Seattle and ending Dec. 10 in Tempe. All tickets can be refunded at point of purchase. The band adds that 2013 dates will be released soon, and they will be honoring previously purchased tickets from this tour.

However, there is a sort of consoloation for fans in the meantime: The release date for date for the third installment of Green Day's trilogy, ¡Tré!, will now be released on Dec. 11—as opposed to the originally scheduled date of Jan. 15, 2013. ¡Dos! will still be out on Nov. 13.
