With Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong on the mend, the Grammy-winning pop-punk band will be getting back on the road to complete their postponed tour.
"We want to thank everyone for hanging in with us for the last few months," the trio said in a statement posted on the Green Day website on Monday.
"We are very excited to hit the road and see all of you again, though we regret having to cancel more shows."
Singer-guitarist Armstrong separately thanked his friends, family and fans for sharing love and support with him over the past few months.
"Believe me, it hasn't gone unnoticed and I'm eternally grateful to have such an amazing set of friends and family," he said in the statement.
"I'm getting better every day. So now, without further ado, the show must go on. We can't wait to get on the road ...Our passion has only grown stronger."
Last fall, Armstrong lashed out in an angry onstage outburst during a Las Vegas performance. The band revealed that Armstrong was seeking substance abuse treatment. About a month later, Green Day cancelled a host of club performance dates and postponed the start of its upcoming tour.
The band cancelled some further dates in January and February, but the tour will finally kick off in Chicago on March 28. Subsequent stops will include Pittsburgh, Rochester, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Toronto and Quebec City.
Partly to appease fans during their recent hiatus, the group released its album Tre, the third of a three-album trilogy, approximately one month early in December.
The latest collection — comprising the three albums Uno, Dos and Tre — is Green Day's first major release of new music since 2009's 21st Century Breakdown. Established in the late 1980s, the California-based rockers are known for albums such as Dookie, Insomniac and American Idiot. The latter topped the music charts, won multiple awards and also inspired a hit Broadway musical of the same name.
