Green Day cancels 2012 tour dates, postpones '13

Posted: Updated:


Green Day is canceling the rest of its 2012 club schedule and is postponing the start of the 2013 arena tour. Bass player Mike Dirnt says Billie Joe Armstrong's "well-being is our main concern" in the band's decision to clear the schedule through February 8.

He says in a statement Monday, Armstrong is doing well in his attempt to shake substance abuse problems that emerged publicly in September when the singer-guitarist had a profane meltdown on the stage of the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.

The Grammy-winning punks also moved up the release date of "Tre," the third installment in a trilogy of albums released over a period of months. The album will be released December 11, more than a month ahead of schedule.
