Green Day Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong Has A Meltdown on Stage.
Green Day performing on Friday at the iHeartRadio Music Festival at the MGM Grand and for some reason had been told they only had one minute to finish their set. At that front man of Green Day took offence at their time being cut and had a meltdown. Screaming and yelling the f*** word repeatedly. Before taking his guitar and smashing it to pieces and threw the neck part into the crowd. He screamed about being around since 19 f***ing 88 and keep saying this is a joke. He saluted with his middle finger and walked off the stage. There is more to this and if you view the video you will see just what happen that night. Just to let everyone know the f*** word is used throughout this video has he goes on a profanity-filled rant, and if that might offend you please do not watch the video.
Green Day has announced Sunday two days after the meltdown that Billie Joe Armstrong is seeking treatment for substance abuse but no other information was giving. The band also said, "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,"
Green Day is set to kick-off their tour in November 26 in Seattle, but with frontman in rehab the band is unsure of that date.
When Billie Joe Armstrong walked off stage after the meltdown people were cheering and not booing, so I think if the up and coming tour is still on this meltdown will do more to sell it out in every city they appear in.
Green Day has a track record of turning out hit albums and song and they are great performers on stage if you have ever seen them play live you know that. And I can understand how he might have been so pushed to end up having this meltdown. But has I don’t have all the information I need to say who was right or wrong I think this band should have been giving more respect than they got .
Green Day is also set to release another album, "Uno,” sometime on Tuesday. And that one will be followed by two other albums, "Dos" and "Tre," scheduled to come out soon.
Billie Joe Armstrong was slated to be a mentor to participants on The Voice that might be in jeopardy now.
The first video has been restored, thanks for letting me know it was missing !
