voodoo 2012 Green Day cancel appearance at Voodoo Experience

Green Day have canceled their appearance at this month’s Voodoo Experience music festival. Drummer Tré Cool said in a statement, “Canceling shows is something we rarely do. We never want to let our fans down, and we are grateful for all of you being understanding during this time.”

News of the cancellation comes less than a month after frontman Billie Joe Armstrong checked himself into rehab for substance abuse treatment. Voodoo Experience was to serve as the launch of the band’s latest North American tour, and it remains unclear whether other dates will be affected.

Set for October 26th – 28th in New Orleans, LA, Voodoo Experience still promises acts like Jack White, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Skrillex, Justice, Nas, The Avett Brothers, Coheed and Cambria, among others.

As of press time, there’s no word on if the festival plans to replace Green Day with a new act.
