|Billie Joe Armstrong|
The band was supposed to play a show in Italy this weekend, but the guys were forced to cancel the gig when Billie Joe was "rushed to the hospital due to illness."
The rest of the band released a video statement saying, "We're beyond devastated ... We're as sad as you guys are. Billie's extremely upset about it."
The guys never revealed the nature of Armstrong's illness ... but now it's obvious, it has something to do with his throat.
