Green Day is getting ready to get back on the road after lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong's stint in rehab.
The alt-rock band, which originally was scheduled to perform Jan. 14 at Consol Energy Center, will instead visit the Pittsburgh arena on March 31. Details are not available yet about ticket prices.
On Sunday, Armstrong posted a thank you to fans on Instagram.
“Dear friends ... I just want to thank you all for the love and support you've shown for the past few months. Believe me, it hasn't gone unnoticed and I'm eternally grateful to have such an amazing set of friends and family,” he said in a statement. “I'm getting better everyday. So now, without further ado, the show must go on. We can't wait to get on the road and live out load! Our passion has only grown stronger.”
The tour resumes on March 28 in Chicago.
