Green Day postpones area shows
October 29, 2012 - Andy Gray
Billie Joe Armstrong’s rehab stint is disrupting Green Day’s tour plans into 2013, including Cleveland and Pittsburgh shows in January.
The band announced this morning it is scrapping a planned club tour later this year, and it is postponing all scheduled appearances in January and February of next year, which affects shows Jan. 14 at Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center and Jan. 30 at Cleveland’s Wolstein Center.
According to the release from the band’s publicist, new dates for the rescheduled shows will be announced shortly and previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new dates.
Green Day’s Mike Dirnt said, “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.”
Green Day also announced they would move up the release date of its next album “Tre” to Dec. 11 from its original date of Jan. 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," drummer Tré Cool said in the release. "If we couldn't be there to play it for you live, the least we could do was give you the next best thing."
