    Power trio Green Day canceled their September 2 gig in Bologna, Italy after frontman Billie Joe Armstrong was hospitalized. Details about BJA's illness were not shared with the media at press time, but his bandmates, drummer Tre Cool and bassist Mike Dirnt, did deliver a message to their fans about their singer's condition.

    The twosome said that the doctors did not believe it was a good idea for BJA to play the show, so he didn't. It's a bum out, but it was also necessary. The boys did say they want to return to Italy as soon as they can and perform!

    Green Day are slated to play the iHeartRadio Festival on September 21 in Las Vegas. We hope that BJA recovers soon and is able to make that gig. We're pulling for him.
