Green Day cover KISS’ ‘Rock And Roll All Nite’ on opening night of Hella Mega Tour

On July 24th, Green Day kicked off their Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer in Arlington, Texas. The giant career-spanning set saw Green Day covering KISS’ “Rock And Roll All Nite.”

The highly anticipated tour was announced all the way back in September of 2019, but had been delayed multiple times due to COVID-19. Now, the three indie giants are out on the Hella Mega Tour, but its Toronto stop never got a rescheduled date.

Green Day’s cover of KISS’ 1975 Dress To Kill Track stayed quite true to the original. Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong’s punk vocals definitely added a distinctive Green Day twist. Kiss members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley both approved of the cover via Twitter. “‘Tonight In DALLAS!’ Another reason to love @GreenDay!” Stanley wrote. Simmons, on the other hand, wrote “Thank you, Gentlemen.”

In addition to the cover, Green Day blew through some anthemic fan favourites. On the first stop of the Hella Mega Tour, Green Day played “American Idiot,” “Basket Case,” “Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)” and many more.
