Green Day cancels all remaining 2012 tour dates, bumps up release of ‘¡Tre!’

10.29.12 6 years ago

In the middle of their most ambitious release and touring release schedule ever, Green Day have canceled their remaining 2012 “club” dates and have bumped up the drop of “¡Tre!” to pre-Christmas.

Billie Joe Armstrong is continuing his rehabilitation from substance abuse, and the band has maintained that the lead singer’s “well-being is our main concern.” Auditorium and theater shows in 2012 have been canceled altogether — that included this past weekend’s headlining stop at the Voodoo Experience festival — and January and February arena stops have been postponed. That puts the rock band out of commission until at least Feb. 8.

“¡Tre!”, which is the group’s third set in their album release trilogy, will now be released on Dec. 11 instead of January 15, in a motion of good faith to fans. 

“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 Tré Cool in a statement.  “If we couldn’t be there to play it for you live, the least we could do was give you the next best thing.”

Green Day’s next album “¡Dos!” will be out next week, on Nov. 9., led with single “Stray Heart.” “¡Uno!” was out on Sept. 21 and was greeted on the Billboard 200 at No. 2.
