Bille Joe Armstrong enters rehab after onstage meltdown
And just when we were starting to wonder if Billy’s freak out was a PR stunt, Green Day announces:
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.
As AP points out “Sunday’s announcement by the band’s rep comes after the rock frontman had a meltdown onstage at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas.”
Which appearances are being cancelled is unclear, but the band is supposed to be on Kimmel and Ellen this week along with some other California gigs. Their proper tour with Best Coast doesn’t start for a while though. Take care Billie Joe.
