Green Day Postpone 2013 Tour Dates, Move Up ¡Tré! Release Date
October 29, 2012


Green Day
Green Day has canceled all the band's 2012 appearances, as well as postponed its upcoming North American arena tour, due to Billie Joe Armstrong's current stint in rehab. However, the band has moved up the release of ¡Tré!, the third album in its new trilogy of albums.

Green Day had been slated to play seven shows in November and December, primarily along the West Coast, then kick off a North American arena tour in early January. The 2012 shows have been canceled and fans should seek a refund on tickets, while the 2013 dates will be rescheduled soon.

"Obviously the timing for this isn’t ideal, but Billie Joe’s well-being is our main concern," said bassist Mike Dirnt. "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."

The band also announced they would move up the release date of ¡Tré! to December 11, 2012 from its original date of January 15, 2013. ¡Dos! will be out on November 13.

"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," said drummer 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."
