After several months on the sidelines brought about by frontman Billie Joe Armstrong‘s visit to a drug and alcohol rehab center, Green Day returned to the stage Sunday (March 10) night in Pomona, Calif., with a 22-song set that was heavy on hits and light on material from their recent one-two-three punch of ‘¡Uno!,’ ‘¡Dos!’ and ‘¡Tré!’

It was the band’s first gig since Armstrong broke down during a performance last September at the iHeart Radio festival in Las Vegas. The singer went on a physical and verbal rampage during that gig, swearing profusely and smashing a guitar before storming off in protest of a shortened set time. He checked into rehab soon after, and Green Day postponed a North American arena tour in support of their newest albums.

Gearing up for the rescheduled arena tour that now kicks off March 28 in Rosemont, Ill., Green Day also play a club gig tonight in Tempe, Ariz., and Wednesay in El Paso, Texas, before an appearance on Friday at SXSW in Austin, Texas. Check out their complete itinerary here.
