Billie Joe Armstrong Ready To Tour With Green Day (Post Rehab)
Remember when Green Day cancelled on Seattle last year? When they kept telling us that Billie Joe Armstrong would be just fine after his stay in drug and alcohol treatment? But no, understandably, the guy needed a break, but…
…the band is now ready to make a comeback at SXSW (The South By South West Music Festival) in Austin on March 15th.
NME is reporting that the group will perform at ACL Live at the Moody Theater on the same day that the film premiere of their film Broadway Idiot premieres.
The group had to cancel their appearances for 2012 and early 2013 after Armstrong had an onstage meltdown, which led to him checking into rehab.
After SXSW the group will pick their tour back up by heading to Illinois on March 28th. But, no, sorry, no Seattle dates have been rescheduled. Here’s their website.
