Voodoo Has a Question Mark

According to an announcement released this morning:

“We, like everyone, were looking forward to having Green Day back at Voodoo,” says Stephen Rehage, the founder/producer of VOODOO. “Their 2004 performance was one of the festival’s greatest. We are obviously disappointed in the news, but realize the health and well being of Billie Joe is the most important thing right now.  We wish him and the entire Green Day family the best and offer them our full support.”

Green Day Cancels for Voodoo

On September 24, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong checked himself into rehab after an onstage rant at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas. At the time, the band announced, "We regretfully must postpone some of our upcoming promotional appearances." Unfortunately, today it was announced that Green Day's appearance at this year's Voodoo Experience is among those cancelled events.

According to this afternoon's press release:

The Voodoo Experience has released its final lineup, which now includes Nas, Coheed and Cambria, Vintage Trouble and another 20 bands for the festival, which this year takes place October 26-28.
