His bandmates apologized to fans when they were in Italy because they didn't want to disappoint them. (Hey, what could be a better reason to cancel than being in the hospital?)

At the time, Green Day released a video statement: "We apologize profusely. Billie got rushed to the hospital last night due to illness. The doctors don't think it's a good idea for him to play today."

The band added, "We're beyond devastated. We're as sad as you guys are. Billie's extremely upset about it, and we'll see you very soon."
