The long-awaited Hella Mega tour featuring Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy finally kicked off over the weekend in Dallas, and the party reached even beyond the stadium full of fans.

Green Day’s set included a cover of the KISS classic “Rock and Roll All Nite,” which caught the attention of band members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons.

Both tweeted video of Billie Joe Armstrong and company’s performance while sharing their approval of the cover. “Thank you, Gentlemen,” Simmons wrote, while Stanley added, “Another reason to love @GreenDay!”

The official KISS Twitter account also shared some love for the cover, writing, “SO Cool! #KISSisEverywhere!”

The Hella Mega tour, which was originally scheduled for 2020 before being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is set to continue Tuesday in Atlanta.
