Green Day have announced plans to return to the road in 2013 and revealed dates for the upcoming tour in support of their new album trilogy, "¡Uno!", "¡Dos!", and "¡Tré!"
A 2-week series of North American shows start March 28 in Chicago; previously announced dates planned for January and February have been cancelled.
The band ceased all live and promotional appearances in support of the new albums following an onstage meltdown by frontman Billie Joe Armstrong in Las Vegas in September (watch the video below), which resulted in the singer seeking treatment for substance abuse.
"We want to thank everyone for hanging in with us for the last few months," said the members of Green Day. "We are very excited to hit the road and see all of you again, though we regret having to cancel more shows."
"Dear friends," writes Billie Joe, "I just want to thank you all for the love and support you've shown for the past few months. Believe me, it hasn't gone unnoticed and I'm eternally grateful to have such an amazing set of friends and family. I'm getting better every day. So now, without further ado, the show must go on. We can't wait to get on the road and live out [loud]! Our passion has only grown stronger."
Tickets for shows that had been postponed will be honored at these new dates. Should you have any questions regarding your tickets please contact your point of purchase. For those who purchased tickets for dates that are now canceled, refunds will be given at original point of purchase.
Additional west coast dates will be announced in early 2013.
