Green Day hits the road again in March 2013
Band returns after six months off for Billie Joe Armstrong's recovery
After canceling some dates outright and postponing others while lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong attended rehab, Green Day will hit the road again on March 28, starting at Chicago’s Allstate Arena.
The trio, who released three albums between September and December of 2012, called off all promotional shows and a planned tour after Armstrong went into an explosive rant at the IHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas in late September. When originally announced in October, the group canceled all remaining dates for 2012 and postponed shows for January- February. Those early 2013 shows are now canceled.
Armstrong thanks his fans and friends for their support over the last several months. "Dear friends... I just want to thank you all for the love and support you've shown for the past few months. Believe me, it hasn't gone unnoticed and I'm eternally grateful to have such an amazing set of friends and family. I'm getting better everyday. So now, without further ado, the show must go on. We can't wait to get on the road and live out [loud]! Our passion has only grown stronger."
Collectively, the band also issued its thanks: "Dear friends... I just want to thank you all for the love and support you've shown for the past few months. Believe me, it hasn't gone unnoticed and I'm eternally grateful to have such an amazing set of friends and family. I'm getting better everyday. So now, without further ado, the show must go on. We can't wait to get on the road and live out load! Our passion has only grown stronger."
West coast dates will be announced in early 2013. Refunds for the now-canceled January and February shows are now available.
