Green Day said Monday it will resume its 2013 arena tour. But the Grammy-winning punk band listed the 1stBank Center in Broomfield as one of the stops that had been "canceled."
Green Day, which made its announcement on its website, had been scheduled to play the Broomfield arena on Feb. 6. The arena's website, 1stbankcenter.com, lists the show as "postponed" and explains that tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.
The band had canceled the remainder of its 2012 club schedule and postponed the start of its 2013 arena tour when singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong's substance abuse problems became public during a Las Vegas show in September. Armstrong had a meltdown during the iHeartRadio Music Festival, and a spokesperson for the band later said Armstrong would seek help for substance abuse.
"I just want to thank you all for the love and support you've shown for the past few months," Armstrong said Monday in a statement. "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 every day. So now, without further ado, the show must go on."
Green Day will resume its tour March 28 near Chicago. The band said additional West Coast dates would be announced in early 2013. ___
