Green Day was forced to cancel a concert in Bologna, Italy Friday night due to the hospitalization of frontman Billie Joe Armstrong .
Bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tre Cool wouldn't say what "illness" befell their band mate, but in a video posted to the band's official website , said they were "beyond devastated" to nix the gig. "We apologize profusely," Dirnt said, "but Billy got rushed to the hospital last night due to illness, and the doctors don't think it's a good idea for him to play today. This sucks. We were really, really looking forward to playing Bologna as the highlight of our tour."
Tre agreed, saying, "We're beyond devastated, we're sad as you guys are...and ah, we'll see you very soon."
Green Day's upcoming album trilogy, ¡Uno! , ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! will be rolling out in the coming weeks and months: ¡Uno! is set to arrive in stores on September 25, while ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! are slated for release on November 13, 2012 and January 15, 2013, respectively.
