Billie Joe Armstrong: Musician is better; Green Day to resume tour
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Green Day is going back on the road.
The Grammy-winning punk band announced new tour dates Monday.
The band canceled the rest of its 2012 club schedule and postponed the start of a 2013 arena tour after singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong's substance-abuse problems emerged publicly in September when he had a profane meltdown on the stage of the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. The band's rep announced later that Mr. Armstrong was headed to treatment for substance abuse.
"I just want to thank you all for the love and support you've shown for the past few months," Mr. Armstrong told fans in a statement Monday. "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 every day. So now, without further ado, the show must go on."
The tour is scheduled to begin March 28 at the Allstate Arena in the Chicago area. Tickets for postponed shows will be honored on the new dates, and refunds will be available for canceled shows.
"We want to thank everyone for hanging in with us for the last few months," the band said. "We are very excited to hit the road and see all of you again, though we regret having to cancel more shows."
The band released its most recent album, "Tre," on Dec. 11, more than a month ahead of schedule.
