Green Day Cancels Upcoming Tempe Tour Stop

A lot of folks were buzzing about seeing Green Day in a club as intimate as the Marquee Theatre in Tempe on Monday, December 10, but it looks like folks will just have to keep imagining (or read our review of the Foxboro Hot Tubs gig at the dearly departed Brickhouse): the trio has canceled its entire club tour to give frontman Billie Joe Armstrong more time to handle addiction issues that caused him to enter rehab in September.

"Obviously the timing for this isn't ideal, but Billie Joe's well-being is our main concern," says Mike Dirnt on the band's official site. "We are happy to say that Billie Joe is doing well, and we want to thank you all for the outpouring of support and well wishes that we have received, and we can't wait to see you all again soon."

As a consolation, Green Day's new EP, ¡Tré! has been moved up to Tuesday, December 11, 2012, from its original date of January 15, 2013.

"We feel bad we have to delay our tour, so to make up for it we want to give our fans the music earlier than we had planned," said Tré Cool. "If we couldn't be there to play it for you live, the least we could do was give you the next best thing."

Refunds are available at point of purchase.

Get better Billie Joe, keep the faith and remember some times the toughest roads to travel down have the best destinations. You are truly a great inspiration. Get thru this and keep your head up

I understand cancelling for rehab and am cool with that.  Billie Joe needs to get himself right and that is the appropriate first priority.  What sucks is that they are refunding tickets for the club shows (like Marque) but reschedule the arena shows.  They'll reschedule Phoenix, but just watch - instead of giving us the really cool club show they initially promissed it will be at Jobing or U.S. Airways.   I guess I shouldn't be surprised that they're using this as an opportunity to grab a bigger payday, just a bit disappointed.  They should honor the Marque tickets and reschedule this show.

Right...sucks that they're bailing on the club shows.  Speaking of money grab, it will also suck that ticket refunds will surely not include any refund of the "service" charges, so fans will have paid $10+/ticket (or whatever it was) for the privilege of buying tickets to a show that won't take place.  Oh, and does anybody know how refunds will take place for tix bought online?

 They'll probably charge us a second "convenience" fee for the huge effort they have to put into issuing the refund.
