Green Day is hitting the road again. The band has announced that it will officially be making up its previously cancelled dates later this Spring. The band thanked its fans for sticking with it through its recent events after making the new tour announcement. “We want to thank everyone for hanging in there with us for the last few months”, the band collectively said. “We are very excited to hit the road and see all of you again, though we regret having to cancel more shows.”
Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong also took time to address the events of recent months. He noted in a press release, “Dear friends…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.”
