Green Day Cancel Italy Show After Billie Joe Armstrong Hospitalized

    According to a new video featuring drummer Tre Cool and bassist Mike Dirnt, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has been hospitalized until further notice, prompting the band to cancel tonight’s show in Bologna, Italy. In the clip, which you can watch below, Dirnt says Armstrong was “rushed to the hospital last night due to illness, and the doctors don’t think it’s a good idea for him to play today,” and that the band will return to Balogna “very soon.”

    It remains unclear how serious Armstrong’s ailment is, but as far as we know, Green Day’s forthcoming album trilogy is still completely on. ¡Uno! comes out on September 24, ¡Dos! drops November 12, and ¡Tré! will be released January 14, 2013.
