    Green Day will cancel the entirety of their club tour that was due to launch in Seattle at the Paramount Theatre on September 26 and wind down in Tempe, Arizona at the Marquee Theatre on December 10. Tickets for these clubs shows will be refunded at point of purchase.

    Additionally, Green Day will postpone all scheduled appearances for the months of January and February 2013. New dates for these rescheduled shows will be announced shortly and previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new dates.

    The band is in a holding pattern while singer Billie Joe Armstrong deals with his issues in rehab. We wish him the VERY best.

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

    Green Day also announced they would move up the release date of Green Day ¡Tré! to December 11, 2012 from its original date of January 15, 2013.

    "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 Tre 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."

    It's okay, guys. BJA's health and wellness is the priority.
