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.

Why apologize? Everybody knows that Clear Channel holds bands hostage and strong arms them into playing these shitty radio shows...if the bands don't play the show then Clear Channel radio stations won't play their music on on them. Then at these shows they give all the bands 40 minutes to play and it wasn't enough time for Billie and Co. to rock out. I say no apology necessary...that set rocked and the best part of it was Billie's meltdown against the Bullshit Clear Channel Giant that like to push bands like Green Day around, and force them to do what they want them to do.

I see a lot of theories going on here and on the GDA, I just hope that everything sooner or later will be clarified and that Billie will get all the help necessary (if necessary). We are here for you man, in good and bad, whatever happened.

Get the help you need and deserve and return the better person you are.
Much love from Salt Lake City.

Something's not right here. They say GreenDay's time wasn't cut short. Well .. it was supposed to be 45 minutes. Why did we get 1 minute left after 24 then.

Why in the HELL would GD say "sorry" when they made plans to put on a good show and then they are cut short to make way for crap????? Really? iHeart Radio has been deleted and I will never have anything to do with them again. These "Festivals are planned, not done at the last minute. Ushaer sucks and so does iheart radio. I hope Billy is OK and will see them in Philly.

Awww Billie!!!Drugs are NOT the way to hapiness!They are driving you to destruction.If you want to be happy spent more time with your children and your family.Take care of yourself because if you don't you soon wont be able to sing,perform and finally to live. Drugs are the fastest way to death. Don't do the same mistake that so many legends have done before.Your life is an amazing gift...don't waste it like that...this isn't fair for you....:)

Best wishes from Ireland lads. He'll pull himself together in no time and will hopefully grace Irish soil.

I kind of sensed something more than pure rage was involved in this. I don't think any apology is necessary, because they had every right to be angry at IHeartRadio. All I hope is that BJA gets all the help needed, and that the Green Day family is well!
