October 29, 2012: Green Day have postponed their next four months' worth of tour dates to allow frontman Billie Joe Armstrong to continue his stint in rehab.
The trio was set for a month-long arena tour scheduled from January 7th in Green Bay, Wisconsin through February 8th in Las Vegas. All the dates will be re-scheduled for later in 2013. They've also moved up the release of Tre from January 15th to December 11th.
Bassist Mike Dirnt says, "Obviously the timing for this isn't ideal, but Billie Joe's well-being is our main concern. 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."
Advance tickets dated 1/7/12 will be honored at rescheduled date. Refunds will be available at the point of purchase.
