Taking to the stage at the Whiskey-A-Go-Go, each band delivered their own greatest hits set, while also performing the new songs they have also released to coincide with the start of the tour.
For Green Day, that meant their debut performance of ‘Father Of All…’, taken from their forthcoming album of the same name. Not content with playing it once, they gave the track two airings because it was, by their own admission, “too short”.
Fall Out Boy and Weezer meanwhile, debuted ‘Dear Future Self (Hands Up)’ and ‘The End Of The Game’ respectively.
Following last night’s show, all three will head out on tour next summer as part of the Hella Mega tour, which will also feature The Interrupters. The dates will kick off in Europe, with UK and Ireland gigs taking place at the end of June. All three will then return to North America for a headline tour across July and August.
