Family Emergency Forces Postponement Of Billie Joe Armstrong’s “The Longshot” Tour

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has been forced to postpone a string of shows with his new band The Longshot due to a bandmate’s family emergency. Armstrong revealed the remainder of the group’s West Coast dates in America had been cancelled, in an Instagram post to fans early on Wednesday. Armstrong debuted The Longshot at a club in his native Oakland, California last month. The band was scheduled to play at Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco, California on Wednesday night, and had four more dates in Washington, Vancouver and Oregon planned. However, it appears the group’s tour will resume in New York on May 22.
