    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.

i figured he had to be pretty fucked up to do that. then again, if my set got cut short, and i was a f'ing rockstar for 24 years, i would have flipped my shit too. hope billie gets well. i'm paying $90 to see the band at a voodoo fest, and since yall the only band i give a shit about seeing, it'd be nice if yall were there. get well, and rock out. hope to see yall in just over a month!

BILLIE, ojala te recuperes, yo aca desde colombia te estoy apoyando al 100 porciento, no me parece que lo que hiciste estuviera mal ya que nada mas fue una forma de expresar la rabia que sentias, recuperate pronto para que estes otra vez tocando y haciendo a miles de personas felices(esto tambien va para MIKE y TRE) sigan rockeando como siempre han hecho y no pierdan el rumbo, ojala se pasen por latinoamerica el proximo año para poder verlos, juro que esta vez si no voy a dejar pasar esta oportunidad

Billie Joe Armstrong,
I’m disappointed in you for letting it get this bad. You should of had more control. But, I completely understand that you didn't plan for it to be this way. I love you with all my soul. Do not let me down. You are my hero, and I have been looking up to you for the past 9 years. I’m not sure what I’d do if I didn’t have you in my life. I fully support you and am glad you have decided to go in for treatment. We will all be here with open arms when you get out. Don’t let this addiction get the best of you. I do not want to see you spiral down and crash. You can do this. Stay strong. You have tons and tons of support to help you through this. Again, I love you. I love you with all my heart. When you’re not okay, I’m not okay. And I won’t be okay until everything is back to normal. Get better as soon as possible, baby. ♥

Dear Billie Joe, I live through your music, your music makes me move, thanks to you I have regained confidence in me. You are an example for my son who is 13 years old he spends his free time listening to Green Day concert in Your Rock en seine was magical! Even though I know I'll never meet, even though I know you do not answer me, know that I sincerely hope you feel better, you're great Billie Joe, My thoughts and those of my son go to you. Sincerely.

To those asking about Mike, I can only guess that the reason he was smashing his guitar was because he was following Billie's lead. He was just backing up his friend. Also, it looked badass and he probably wanted in on the destruction. :).
Aside from that, we love you Billie Joe! We are behind you 100%.
Rage and Love!

Hope everything is ok! Kind of a shocker to hear this though.
I thought it was pretty funny when I saw the video from last night but now its a totally different story.

i agree with piat there is no reason for an apology he probably did the substance stuff to keep himself from strangling the clear channel guyZ
