After months of uncertainty regarding the future of pop-punk icon Green Day, the band announced via its official website on Monday that it has rescheduled a handful of tour dates in support of its recently-released trilogy of albums.
Unfortunately for State College-area fans, the Bryce Jordan Center will not be one of those stops, said Bernie Punt, BJC director of sales and marketing.
“Green Day has officially canceled 10 dates on their postponed tour,” Punt announced on Twitter yesterday. “State College is one of the dates that got axed…so ends 2012.”
The concert, previously slated for Jan. 11, was initially postponed along with the remainder of Green Day’s early 2013 appearances after frontman Bilie Joe Armstrong’s well-publicized outburst at the iHeartRadio festival in September and subsequent admission into rehab for an unspecified substance abuse problem.
“We want to thank everyone for hanging in with us for the last few months,” the band said in a press release. “We are very excited to hit the road and see all of you again, though we regret having to cancel more shows.”
The band's “¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tre!” tour is set to resume on March 28 at the Allstate Arena in Chicago.
Punt could not be reached for additional comment.
