Whilst playing at the iHeart Radio music festival in Las Vegas, Green Day were forced to cut their set short causing frontman Billie Joe Armstrong to have, as some sources have claimed, an “onstage meltdown”.
After discovering that the band had only one minute left to play, Billie Joe exclaimed “One minute left. One minute fucking left. You’re gonna give me one fucking minute? Let me tell you something, I’ve been around since fucking 198-fucking-8, and you’re gonna give me one fucking minute? I’m not fucking Justin Bieber, you motherfuckers.”
He then proceeded to smash his guitar to bits before leaving the stage. You can watch footage of the incident below:
The band have since released a statement via their official Facebook page (here), stating “Billie Joe is seeking treatment for substance abuse. We would like everyone to know that our set was not cut short by Clear Channel and to apologize to those we offended at the iHeart Radio Festival in Las Vegas. We regretfully must postpone some of our upcoming promotional appearances.”
