After dual surgeries, Bon Jovi drummer Tico Torres is back with the band he’s been a part of for 30 years. The 59-year-old Torres returned on Oct. 9 for the group’s show in Fresno, Calif., playing a two-hour-plus concert for fans at the Save Mart Center.

Torres first experienced medical issues early last month, when a  Sept. 10 concert in Mexico City was canceled after he was rushed to the hospital. An emergency appendectomy was performed, and he started to recover. But less than two weeks later, he was hospitalized again with severe abdominal pain, resulting in gall-bladder surgery.

“Tico Torres has been the heart and soul of our band since we started 30 years ago” Jon Bon Jovi said at the time. “He’s also one tough SOB and we look forward to him again pounding away brilliantly at the drums on the remainder of this and future tours.”

Rich Scannella, the drummer with Jon’s New Jersey-based Kings of Suburbia side project, had been filling in for Torres. The band has a heavy touring schedule through the remainder of 2013, including dates in Japan, Canada and Australia.
