billie joe armstrong thanks fans

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong hit Instagram today to post a thank you note to fans for their support and to announce that the popular group will resume touring in 2013.

Armstrong, who entered rehab in late September after a major melt down during a iHeartRadio stage performance in Las Vegas, released his first public statement on New Year's Eve.

He wrote, "I just wanted to thank you all for the love and support you've shown for the past few months.  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 everyday."

"So now, without further ado, the show must go on.  We can't wait to get on the road and live out loud!  Our passion has only grown stronger.  Happy New Year.  We love you all.  Rage and love.  P.S. Green Day tour in March."
