That's still a very long way from being able to play concerts.  This article 
is from a few days ago:

So what's up with Dave now, you ask? Well, I'm glad you did, because I did a 
little research, and here's what I found out. He is well on his way to 
recovery, possibly a full recovery, after spending a fair amount of time in 
a London physical rehabilitation center. A BBC online report said he was, 
"... paralyzed on the right-hand side of his body, but he retains some 
feeling and he can still hold a guitar plectrum."

Plus, before his stroke I had heard from someone in the Kinks camp that Dave 
had no interest in reforming the Kinks at all, even though there is a 
standing offer on the table ($$$).
