Following an onstage outburst at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on Friday night, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is seeking treatment for substance abuse, according to a statement from the band.
The incident happened less than 30 minutes into the band's set, when the singer became outraged when a video prompter indicated that the band had to wrap up their set in one minute. Armstrong brought the band to a halt mid-song and went on a profanity-filled rant. He then smashed his guitar and stormed off stage, Billboard reports.
The band's statement says that Clear Channel (the event's sponsor) did not cut the band's set short and apologized to anyone offended by the incident.
Green Day's latest album "Uno" will be released this coming Tuesday.
