Green Day kicked off their 2022 tour with a set at the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest on Saturday night (February 12).

The band were co-headlining the third and final night of the festival at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, alongside Miley Cyrus. Over the course of their set, they played 28 songs from across their career, plus several covers.

Opening with ‘American Idiot’, the first half of their set included ‘ Holiday’, ‘Know Your Enemy’ and a cover of The Crickets’ ‘I Fought The Law’, which the band haven’t played live since 2010. They also played Tommy James & the Shondells’ ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ for the first time, along with KISS‘ ‘Rock And Roll All Nite’ and Operation Ivy‘s ‘Knowledge’.
