The band has announced they are canceling their already-postponed tour stop at the Wolstein Center.
Those who purchased tickets using a credit card will receive a full refund for the ticket and convenience fee. The refund should appear on credit card statements within 7-10 business from Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013.
Starting Friday, Jan. 4, those who used cash to purchase tickets can return to the box office in person to obtain a refund.
"We want to thank everyone for hanging in with us for the last few months," said the members of Green Day in a press release. "We are very excited to hit the road, though we regret having to cancel more shows."

"Dear friends...I just want to thank you all for the love and support you've shown for the past few months," Armstrong said in a press release. "Believe me, it hasn't gone unnoticed and I'm eternally grateful to have such an amazing set of friends and family. I'm getting better every day. ..."
