Green Day covered Kiss’ arena rock classic “Rock and Roll All Nite” during the band’s headlining set at the tour-opening Hella Mega show in Arlington, Texas Saturday.
Billie Joe Armstrong — who spent the pandemic playing covers — and company first performed the Dressed to Kill song at Green Day’s Tulsa, Oklahoma warmup show earlier this week, but Saturday’s Globe Life Field concert provided the faithful rendition its proper stadium setting.
Soon after, Kiss’ Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley both tweeted their approval of their fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees’ cover; however, only one of the two tweeted the correct location of the concert:
