Armstrong Heads To Rehab After iHeart Festival

9-24-2012

Billie Joe Armstrong is entering rehab after a profanity-laced performance (see the video here) at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. Armstrong went crazy on stage when the clock showed he needed to end his set in four minutes. He may have set an F-bomb record in those final four minutes. He then showed Clear Channel they were number one a few times and destroyed his guitar on stage. The band has apologized for Armstrong's tirade and canceled upcoming appearances.

On the Green Day Facebook page is the following statement. "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."
