  • PROVIDENCE — Going from well-publicized, profanity-laced public meltdown (and subsequent treatment for "substance abuse") to a rock 'n' roll rebirth hot enough to singe one's eyebrows, Green Day's front-man Billie Joe Armstrong is not only back but he's bigger, badder and hammier than ever.

    On top of that, Armstrong seemed to be having the time of his life and so, too, did the 10,000-plus in attendance Tuesday night at the Dunkin' Donuts Center.

    As part of the rescheduled "99 Revolutions Tour" (for the three companion albums, "¡Uno!," "¡Dos!" and "¡Tré!"), Green Day performed a career-spanning, two-and-a-half hour, 27-song set that included a three-song encore and, at least one song from each of the band's albums.

    In fact, with only eight of the 27 numbers from the combined trilogy — which sounded better and more fleshed out live than on the records — that they are allegedly touring behind, six numbers from "American Idiot" and five from 1994's breakthrough "Dookie," this show was a dream come true for diehard and recent Green Day devotees alike. The Berkeley-based combo (which has gone from being an unassuming punk trio to powerhouse sextet in concert) barreled out of the starting gate with a blistering, slash-and-burn assault of "99 Revolutions" from "¡Tré!"

    Before jamming at Barclays Center Sunday night, Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong and his 18-year-old son, Joseph, tossed the rock around the stadium’s basketball court that afternoon. “Billie got it started by rebounding the ball for Joey for the first few shots. Then Joey stayed and played for about an hour with three friends,” according to a courtside spectator passing through.

  • Punk icons Green Day gave fans a treat with their first performance at Brooklyn’s latest attraction, the Barclays Center, with support from their fellow Calfornians of the band Best Coast.

    Just prior to the headlining set, overjoyed fans sang vigorously to classics by Queen and the Ramones as Green Day’s pink bunny mascot had fun interacting with the crowd while drinking beer. Green Day graced the massive stage and performed with overwhelming energy as they kicked off the gig with ’99 Revolutions,’ the first of many songs on their lengthy setlist.

  • ‘Life ain’t pretty . . . I can testify to that s--t,” opined Billie Joe Armstrong early in last night’s Green Day concert at Barclays Center.

    The last eight months have seen him suffer a drink- and prescription-drug-fueled meltdown onstage in Las Vegas, enter an outpatient rehab program, and have his band’s big return come to a screeching halt before it could even get into second gear.

    You get the feeling that his testimony on life’s ugliness would indeed be compelling, but Armstrong would never dream of ruining anyone’s night out with such self-pitying.

    Instead, he and his Berkeley punks
