The 'American Idiot' band are making drastic changes to the way they tour to accommodate their newly sober frontman - who recently completed rehab after an on-stage breakdown last September- in order to make sure there's no chance of him suffering a relapse.
Bassist Mike Dirnt told NME magazine: ''It's nerve wracking playing these shows after Billie Joe's rehab. The s**t really hit the fan.
''He's in a good place. What I will say is backstage is going to be a lot different from now on. We'll watch for stuff getting passed around, not let idiots walk backstage, not get hammered and s**t like that.''
Mike and drummer Tre Cool said they were ''scared for their friend's life'' when Billie was admitted to rehab for a drug and alcohol addiction last year. He left rehab in January after four months of treatment, undergoing a ''gruesome'' detox process to suppress his addictions.
He is on the road to recovery but admitted: ''I have to work on it every day. Because I know what goes on out there.''
