Billie Joe Armstrong - Billie Joe Armstrong's Illness Explained By Band Mate

Mike Dirnt of Green Day has made a statement to fans worried about punk rocker Billie Joe Armstrong, who fell ill during the band's European tour.
Dirnt has revealed that his band mate was hospitalised after a bad bout of influenza. Their gig in Italy on Sunday night (02Sep12) had to be cancelled after Armstrong fell ill with a mystery sickness while in Bologna. Green Day have promised to play that gig though. Dirnt told Mtv News: "Billie came down with heavy, heavy dehydration; it was like severe dehydration, influenza, and it was just a really, really bad situation. He woke up in the morning and it was bad. Let's put it this way, if you're in your hotel room and you're vomiting profusely, it's not fun. So what are you gonna do? It's hard to sing while you're puking."
Dirnt guaranteed Italian fans the 80's punk rock outfit, will reschedule their axed concert as soon as is humanly possible. "We're going to make our way back to Bologna and play that show Asap. We don't miss many shows; we've maybe missed five shows out of our entire career and we pride ourselves on that, but we're human." The Mtv Music Video Awards will hopefully see the return of Armstrong, when the band performs at the ceremony on Thursday, September 6th.
