It’s been six months, and Billie Joe Armstrong is still not fucking Justin Bieber. The Green Day frontman returned to the stage last night at Pomona, California’s Fox Theater after heading off to rehab for treatment following his meltdown at the iHeartRadio fest in September 2012. The trio played two hours at the intimate venue, demonstrating the band’s resilience and willingness to celebrate the past (tracks as old as “2000 Light Years Away”) as well as its present and future.
