After Billie Joe Armstrong fell ill, Green Day have provided MTV with an update to his condition, and revealed what was wrong with the punk front man.
"Billie came down with heavy, heavy dehydration; it was like severe dehydration, influenza, and it was just a really, really bad situation. He woke up in the morning and it was bad. Let's put it this way, if you're in your hotel room and you're vomiting profusely, it's not fun. So what are you gonna do? It's hard to sing while you're puking," explained band mate Mike Dirnt. The singer's illness forced them to cancel their show in Italy on Sunday. "We're going to make our way back to Bologna and play that show Asap. We don't miss many shows; we've maybe missed five shows out of our entire career and we pride ourselves on that, but we're human."
They will be hoping for Armstrong's quick recovery more than ever, this being one of the busiest times in the bands history. As well as the decision to release three albums in quick succession, as part of a record-trilogy, the punk rockers' publicity and accompanying tour are fierce. They recently announced a huge UK stadium show for next summer. The three-piece will headline London's 60,000 capacity Emirates Stadium on June 1, 2013. Tickets for the show will go on sale at the end of next month on September 28.
