After a tumultous autumn for frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day is getting ready to tour again. In October, the group was forced to cancel gigs after Armstrong checked into a clinic following a festival in Las Vegas. The singer checked into a treatment facility for substance abuse following a breakdown at the iHeart Radio Music Festival.
During the event Armstrong took offense to a time warning towards the end of his set and stormed offstage after accusing concert organizers of disrespecting him. To see what he said (because it’s pretty rude) you can check the full dialogue on Starpulse.
Needless to say, Armstrong is pretty thankful right now and seems to be in the right frame of mind to get it back together. We hope that this is permanent for Billie Joe. Can’t wait to hear what comes next!
