Green Day dealt another blow to fans, announcing that they are canceling the rest of their 2012 dates, and pushing their January and February dates back. The band has already canceled a handful of dates in the wake of singer Billie Armstrong's stint in rehab. New dates are expected for to be announced shortly and refunds will be issued for the 2012 dates.
"Obviously the timing for this isn't ideal, but Billie Joe's well-being is our main concern," said Mike Dirnt in a news release.
"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," adds 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."
