The Show Goes on for Green Day!

Shortly after Billie Joe Armstrong took to the stage of the iHeart Radio Music Festival in September to launch into a long and angry rant, he checked himself into rehab for addiction. And while it hasn’t been an easy road since that time, the band has now picked themselves up and are moving on. In March, that will be to Rosemont, Illinois to start their tour which had been postponed due to Armstrong’s absence.

The tour is filled with brand new dates that are to replace the former dates Green Day had scheduled before the iHeart Music Festival. Originally saying that those dates would be postponed, the band has now officially cancelled them and brought entirely new shows. Those cities will include Pittsburgh, Rochester, Philadelphia, and Brooklyn, New York, to name just a few. The tour will take them throughout North America, wrapping up in Quebec City, Canada on April12. From there Green Day will travel from festival to festival, at various locations around the globe.

The road definitely hasn’t been easy, as bassist for the band, Mike Dirnt, said initially it was “killing everyone,” and that “Billie doesn’t take things lightly.” That’s already proven true with this upcoming tour, as a statement on the band’s official website said, “We want to thank everyone for hanging in with us for the last few months. So now, without further ado, the show must go on.”
