Green Day Cancel Tour Through 2012, To Reschedule January Mohegan Date

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

Amid frontman Billie Joe Armstrong’s ongoing time in rehab, Green Day decided to cancel the rest of their tour through this year, and postpone dates for January and February.

This includes a stop at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville scheduled for January 19. A new date has not been announced, though according to a release on the band’s website, previously purchased tickets will be honored.

The band is also moving up the release of the album “¡Tré!” to December 11, from its original release of January 15.

Billie Joe Armstrong entered rehab shortly after an f-bomb riddled tirade at the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas. It was probably the most punk thing Green Day has done since 1994.

“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.” said a statement on their website.

“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.”

    “Since we will have a brief interruption in our concert ticket income stream, we have moved up the date where we offer you something else to buy from us. You’re welcome.”
