Green Day threw it all the way back to 1991 at the 2019 Game Awards last night. The Hall of Fame rockers played “Welcome To Paradise”. They then kicked into the titular track of their upcoming album Father Of All…
Following the performance, it was announced that a special DLC pack for the VR game Beat Saber was to be released featuring six Green Day tracks.
The 2019 Game Awards were a pretty massive showcase last night. Between the Green Day performance and the Xbox Series X announcement, attendees were rocking in their seats. Watch Green Day perform “Welcome To Paradise” below.
When Green Day performed “Father Of All…”, Beat Saber began playing in the background in time with Green Day, announcing the legendary pairing.
The six songs that are included in the DLC pack are “American Idiot,” “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “Father of All…,” “Fire, Ready, Aim,” “Holiday” and “Minority”. The DLC pack will cost $9.
More Green Day
Fans were given quite the treat over the weekend. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers played an intimate show in Costa Mesa, California as the Coverups. The Coverups are a side project of the members, where they perform mostly punk pioneer cover tracks.
So the Coverups tore through their cover set and surprised the small venue with a six-song Green Day performance that included “Welcome To Paradise” and “Jesus Of Suburbia”.
The cover set by the Coverups consisted of hits by Misfits and the Ramones, as well as many other punk classics. The final six songs of the 34 song set is where the magic happens though. Watch the video below.
The mini-set consisted of their new single “Father Of All..”, “Revolution Radio”, “Hitchin’ A Ride”, “Welcome To Paradise”, “Burnout”, and “Jesus Of Suburbia.” What an amazing time it would be to see Billie Joe Armstong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool performing in something other than a sold-out stadium.
Green Day’s new album Father Of All… is expected out Feb. 07, 2020. Preorders and all other info are available here.
