Green Day were in full throttle up until Billie Joe Armstrong’s freak out on stage at the iHeartRadio music festival in Las Vegas this September. Their first album in an installment of three, ¡Uno!, was released at number two on the Billboard charts, and they had performances lined up into 2013. A couple days after the performance at iHeardRadio, though, Armstrong began treatment for substance abuse.
According to Rolling Stone, starting with canceling their spot at the Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans, Green Day has now cancelled their remaining performances for 2012. They’ve also pushed back dates in 2013.
As an apology to their fans, they will be moving up the release date for the third installment in this set of albums, ¡Tré!, from January 15th to December 11th. Drummer Tre Cool says, “If we couldn’t be there to play it for you live, the least we could do was give you the next best thing” (Rolling Stone).
Green Day’s next album, ¡Dos!, will still be released on November 13th.
