With Billie Joe Armstrong in rehab for still unspecified reasons Green Day are holding back their planned tour for the time being, but have given fans a taste of what they can get when they do return by posting a 20 minute video of a show from before Armstrong's infamous breakdown occurred.
The footage shows the last 20 minutes of the mammoth concert, that saw the band play massive 40 song set at New York's Irving Plaza. The footage shows Armstrong carrying his usual stage demeanour with him to the stage, as he and band mates Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool jammed their way through tracks like 'Ride', 'When I Come Around', 'She and 'American Idiot'. The footage lacks any clear reason as to why the rocker would go on to make such a furore a week later at Vegas' iHeartRadio Festival.
Back in September, the band announced that singer Billie Joe had committed himself into rehab for help unspecified substance issues. Armstrong is set to remain in rehab for an unspecified time, with the band holding back the remainder of the tour until their lead singer and guitarist has made a full recovery. The band are still on track to release their next album, Dos! on November 13.
