Green Day has announced it is postponing several New England shows scheduled for early 2013.

The postponed shows include Jan. 18 at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, N.H.; Jan. 24 at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, R.I.; and Jan. 25 at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine.

The band's frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong, was admitted to a substance abuse rehab center in September after a tirade during the iHeartRadio festival when the band's set was cut short.

The band recently released the album "¡Uno!" and has another two albums coming out in November and December.

New dates for the concerts were not immediately known.
