Green Day finally set to tour behind new albums
Pop-punk outfit Green Day has rescheduled a slew of postponed winter dates behind the recently released album "Tre!," the final set in the "Uno!, Dos!, Tre!" trilogy.
The band, comprised of singer/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tre Cool, will return to the road for a March 28 performance in Chicago. The new round of dates are rescheduled from a previously postponed itinerary stemming from Armstrong's stint in rehab.
The current outing includes 11 rescheduled concerts, and more West Coast shows will be announced in the coming weeks.
"We want to thank everyone for hanging in with us for the last few months," Green Day said in a press release. "We are very excited to hit the road and see all of you again, though we regret having to cancel more shows."
A list of those rescheduled dates is below.
Tickets for the postponed shows will be honored at the rescheduled dates, while fans holding tickets to canceled concerts are directed to the point of purchase for refunds.
Armstrong also made a statement, thanking his fans for their support in recent months.
"I'm getting better everyday. So now, without further ado, the show must go on. Our passion has only grown stronger."
The Grammy-winning band unleashed "Tre!" in December, one month earlier than originally expected. The album completes the trilogy, which started with the late September release of "Uno!" and November's "Dos!"
