The keyboardist was arrested by police on a drugs charge as he tried to board a plane to play Oxegen, following the band's Live Earth show on Saturday.
Simpson missed the Irish festival but was released in time to play T In The Park last night (Sunday).
The band triumphed during their headline homecoming show and pulled one of the biggest crowds of the weekend.
However, the band were pelted with a variety of shoes after Gary Lightsbody asked, "Anyone got a size 10?" after a first pair were thrown on stage.
The singer shrugged it off though, paying tribute to the Scottish habit of throwing cups of beer at bands. He also praised Scotland's other prodigal sons Biffy Clyro who played earlier in the day.
Snow Patrol's set was make up entirely of songs from their last two albums 'Eyes Open' and 'Final Straw'. Opening with 'Hands Open', the band raced through 16 songs including the hits 'Chasing Cars', 'Run' and 'How To Be Dead', before closing with 'You're All I Have'.
