Green Day has announced the cancellation of all tour dates for the foreseeable future due to Billie Joe Armstrong's ongoing issues. His bandmates said this:
Obviously the timing for this isn't ideal, but Billie Joe's well-being is our main concern. We are happy to say that Billie Joe is doing well. [Also] 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, If we couldn't be there to play it for you live, the least we could do was give you the next best thing.
As a result, Â¡TrÃ©! is now due out December 11, 2012.
