Green Day to return to touring in 2013
Green Day have confirmed that they will hit the road again this year following frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's stint in rehab.
As previously reported, the singer and guitarist checked into a rehabilitation facility in September for substance abuse after an on-stage meltdown.
The punk-rockers cancelled a number of dates due to take place in January and February as a result.
However, the group have confirmed a new batch of US and Canada dates for March and April. They said in a statement: "We want to thank everyone for hanging in with us for the last few months. We are very excited to hit the road and see all of you again, though we regret having to cancel more shows."
Billie Joe Armstrong meanwhile recently said that he can't wait to return to touring, posting on Instagram:
"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 everyday. So now, without further ado, the show must go on. We can’t wait to get on the road and live out load! Our passion has only grown stronger."
The new tour dates meanwhile are as follows:
