Nearly two years after its initial announcement, the Hella Mega Tour finally kicked off last night in Dallas, TX. Green Day played a career-spanning set that appropriately included a cover (something Billie Joe Armstrong became well-accustomed to during the pandemic); however, it wasn’t a song that was featured on his No Fun Mondays album. It was Kiss‘s “Rock and Roll All Nite.” And the band’s Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley both voiced their approval on social media.
“‘Tonight In DALLAS!’ Another reason to love @GreenDay!” Stanley tweeted alongside footage from the performance.
“@GreenDay. In [Dallas] yesterday! Thank you, Gentlemen,” wrote Simmons, who also shared video.
Green Day, along with Fall Out Boy and Weezer, will continue traversing the country throughout the summer. Watch them cover “Rock and Roll All Nite” and see a full list of Hella Mega Tour dates below.
