    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.

billy has always and will always be an epic drummer who put on the most entertaining live gigs ever seen so yeah cut him a break we all have issues and well what he said was perfectly true

Leire's picture

I'm so sorry for him. I wish he gets better soon. The only think I don't understand is why does he do it... His music is absolutely perfect, and his family love him a lot! I can't find the point, it's a shame... Best wishes.

I agree with eleST.JIMMY

U know, I don't believe in it. All is too willfully. I think, Billy has just a nervous breakdown. And why do you apologize for it, it is your first trick? And Billy did it right.
If this is true, I hope to Billie for a speedy recovery.
With love, xxx

I don't know what to say. I mean, I really hope that what happened in Bologna wasn't caused by drugs or similar..I was there, you know.
Anyway, I'm a bit disappointed but you're a human and like all humans we commit mistakes.
Get well soon Billie Joe, I'm looking forward to seeing you live in Italy again and to buying Uno tomorrow. I love you guys, whatever things go.
Sorry for my English, I'm Italian.

I feel your reaction at iHeartRadio was justified. We all love and support you 100% Billie, and hope that you get better soon.

Meditation helps us on many levels, from simple relaxation to freedom from suffering and full liberation of heart and mind. It allows us to:

defuse stress and experience greater calm
explore the mind-body relationship
connect to our feelings
expand our sense of who we are, beyond our fears and self-judgment
find genuine happiness
discover inner resources that can change our everyday lives
awaken our capacity for insight and wisdom
transform our worldview from one of isolation and confusion to one of connection, clarity and compassion
broaden our perspective and deepen our courage, based on seeing things just as they are

You guys are fucking incredible and there is no need for any apologies, you are my heroes, and you always will be and there is nothing wrong with not taking any bullshit from these fuckers.

Billie please get well soon, take as much time as you need to get better and I wish you all the best with whatever needs to be done, and whatever is going on in your life, and Mike and Tre's lives too..

Can't wait to see you all in Australia!

I've always liked Green Day's style but am only now really getting into the music. This whole ordeal really makes me like them more. I definitely don't think his reaction was uncalled for and I'm glad he stood up for himself. If he really does need help I'm glad he's getting it, but as for what happened that the festival, I'm behind the band 100%. Back in the good days this was just part of being a rockstar. People need to stop being so butthurt.

take care of you and take your time

I know you're probably going through Hell right now, but just know that we are behind you 1000%! Seeking treatment is the hardest step, and you've already done that. Be proud of that! It's not easy (I know). You have the benefit of a family and many friends and fans who love you and only want the best for you, no matter how long it takes. You've already overcome a lot in your lifetime; you can overcome this, too. You are strong! You've inspired me and so many people to be the best we could become, and we'll wait for you until you're at your best again. Take care! Love, Jen

SMOKE WEED FEEL GOOD! billie needs to go back to his old days smoking weed and having a good green day :P those hard drugs have taken a tole on you billie we love you no matter what just get over that heavy shit AND SMOKE YOUR FUCKING INSPIRATION!

I can also understand why Billie Joe was so frustrated on stage during the show...I just watched the entire performance and it was such a tough crowd. There were Green Day fans, yes, but there were A LOT of pop artist fans out there and the band was finding it difficult to enjoy themselves on stage when those people wouldn't support or interact with the band. Again, I hope he feels better soon. I LOVE YOU GREEN DAY. Offensive or not, I love what you did on that stage! A great band like you guys doesn't need to be in that kind of situation. You deserve better than that

Hope Billie gets better soon! Although I do applaud him for standing up it's not fair his time was cut short and I would have been upset too. Get well soon xx

Love to him & his family at this time. It takes a lot to admit you need help & am glad he is getting it. I will keep you in my thoughts & Mike & Tre as well. Much love to all. ~MadElf Creativeworks

Bdog420's picture

I can say without a doubt in my mind that any other one of the artists sets were cut short, they would of been extremely upset too.

GET BETTER BILLIE JOE!!! I don't give a shit if you need to take months off from promotion and touring to get the time you need to recover from whatever it is, man. The most important thing is your health and well being. Whenever you're better and ready for the world, THAT is when we will see you guys in concert. And man we will be ready to rock out!!! Party hats, feather boas, signs, you name it. And front row and centre. Much love. XX
