Billie Joe Armstrong’s The Longshot Cancel Summer Tour Dates

Billie Joe Armstrong’s new band, The Longshot, recently kicked off their spring/summer tour, but the outing will be shorter than expected. The band revealed on Instagram they are canceling the remaining dates immediately due to a family emergency.

“One of our band members @longshot is dealing with a very serious family emergency. It’s with heavy hearts we need to announce tonight’s show in Santa Ana and the rest of the West Coast shows will be postponed. We love you all and we will be back. Please send good vibes to each other,” stated Billie Joe Armstrong in on Instagram.

The tour launched earlier this month with a show in Tijuana, MX and was slated to hit the West Coast and the East Coast before wrapping up June 2 in Philadelphia, PA. The Longshot released their debut self-titled EP in early April. Their full-length album, Love is For Losers, followed a week later. Stream and purchase the album here.
