As a result of Billie Joe Armstrong checking himself into rehab, Green Day have announced that they have canceled their remaining shows for 2012.
The band have also announced that they have moved up the release date for ‘¡Tre!’ from January 15, 2013 to December 11, 2012.
The band made the following comments:
“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.”
