The band was scheduled to perform at the I-Festival on September 2. When Armstrong fell ill, bandmates Tres Cool and Mike Dirnt posted a video message on YouTube, apologizing to fans on the cancellation of the concert. “We’re beyond devastated,” said Tres Cool. “We’re as sad as you guys are. Billie’s extremely upset about it, and we’ll see you very soon.”
The band is preparing to unveil its upcoming album trilogy, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tre! beginning Sept. 25, with the second and third installments following on Nov. 13, and Jan. 15, 2013, respectively.
Get well soon, Billie Joe.
