Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong Rocks Out Post-Rehab Stint!

| Filed under: DrugsMusic MinuteGreen Day

Green Day is back!

The band of rockers performed for a sold out crowd on Sunday for the first time since frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's onstage meltdown and resulting rehab stint last fall.

The award winning musicians returned with a rock n' roll bang at the Fox Theater in Pomona, CA in preparation for their American tour.

Even though Billie has admitted that maintaining sobriety is tough, he appeared to be back to his old, energetic self.

Hopefully the stress of the tour won't cause any old habits to flare up again!

Just take it one day at a time, Billie.

Ch-ch-check out the rambunctious crew dominate the stage with American Idiot (above)!!
