Green Day cancels Voodoo festival performance
The Grammy-winning rock band Green Day has canceled its upcoming performance in New Orleans.
The band was scheduled to headline the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience at City Park on Oct. 27.
The announcement, which was posted on the Voodoo festival website, did not include a reason for the cancellation but comes less than a month after the band’s frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong, headed into treatment for substance abuse, according to The Associated Press.
Mr. Armstrong had a meltdown onstage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas in September as Green Day was wrapping up its performance during the two-day concert. He profanely complained that the band’s time was being cut short and smashed his guitar before leaving the stage. The band later apologized in a statement but canceled other promotional appearances.
Voodoo was one of the few appearances the band had not canceled, until Tuesday.
“We, like everyone, were looking forward to having Green Day back at Voodoo,” said the festival’s producer, Stephen Rehage, adding that Green Day’s 2004 Voodoo performance was “one of the festival’s greatest.”
Mr. Rehage said he is disappointed by the cancellation but “the health and well-being of Billie Joe is the most important thing right now. We wish him and the entire Green Day family the best and offer them our full support.”
