For the first time since frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's infamous iHeartRadio Music Festival meltdown, Green Day has a Vegas concert on its schedule.

The punk trio will bring its upcoming tour, in support of new album Revolution Radio, to the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Friday, April 7. Tickets start at $45 and go on sale Friday, October 14 at 10 a.m. through LiveNation.com and AXS.com and at any MGM Resorts box office.

The last time Green Day played on that stage, September 21, 2012, Armstrong fired a series of F-bombs and smashed his guitar into pieces to express his displeasure with iHeart's time limitations and the crowd's apparent lethargy. Three days later, Armstrong checked into rehab for substance abuse, and the following month, Green Day canceled its remaining tour dates, including a scheduled February 2013 MGM Grand gig.

Green Day last played a full concert in Las Vegas on August 21, 2009 at Mandalay Bay Events Center.
