CLEVELAND - Green Day has canceled its Jan. 30 show at the CSU Wolstein Center as the punk rock band's frontman continues his rehab.
Green Day is returning to touring in March, but it means the band is canceling shows scheduled before that date.
The punk rock band's Jan. 30 concert at Cleveland State University's Wolstein Center is one of the canceled shows.
"We want to thank everyone for hanging in with us for the last few months," said the members of Green Day on the band's website. "We are very excited to hit the road, though we regret having to cancel more shows."
Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong wrote, "Dear friends…I just want to thank you all for the love and support you've shown for 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. I'm getting better everyday. So now, without further ado, the show must go on. Our passion has only grown stronger."
Armstrong has been undergoing treatment for substance abuse following an angry showing at a September concert.
Those who bought tickets using a credit card through the Wolstein Center's website, via phone or at the box office will be refunded the ticket price and all convenience fees to the card used. The refund should appear on your credit card statement within 7-10 business days from Jan. 3.
Beginning on Jan. 4, patrons using cash for purchases at the box office will need to return tickets to the box office in person to get a refund.
Refunds can be obtained before Jan. 4, 2014 during normal box office hours Monday-Friday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
