It has been widely publicised in the past two days that Billie Joe Armstrong, front man and writer for Grammy award winners Green Day, has been admitted to rehab in connection with substance abuse issues. Many have said that this is a publicity stunt engineered to push sales of UNO, the new Green Day cd released today.
It is not known at this time when Green Day will resume with signings and appearences.
The following is an official announcement from the Green Day website
Billie Joe is seeking treatment for substance abuse. We would like everyone to know that our set was not cut short by Clear Channel and to apologize to those we offended at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas. We regretfully must postpone some of our upcoming promotional appearances.
