Randy Blythe returned to the stage with Lamb Of God on Friday for the first time since he was released from prison in the Czech Republic earlier this month.
The band's scheduled appearance at Slipknot's inaugural Knotfest event was thrown into jeopardy after frontman Blythe was locked up in Prague for more than a month in relation to the death of a fan in 2010.
He was freed on 2 August, and the band took to the stage in Iowa as planned for their set at Knotfest on Friday.
Speaking before the show, Blythe insisted he would not be changing his stage routine.
He told music publication Revolver, "What else am I going to do? We don't have a big production set up or anything. We don't have purple dragons that fly out of the sky and breathe fire. We're just a bunch of dudes who get up there and rock and roll."
Blythe is accused of pushing a male fan off stage at the band's gig in Prague in 2010. The 19 year old reportedly died of a brain haemorrhage several weeks later.
The rocker has vowed to return to the Czech Republic to face trial if he is summoned.
