The Kinks were the antithesis of the counterculture, being wickedly sardonic, wryly perceptive, and fiercely autonomous. The Kinks, unlike many of the other prominent Sixties bands, retained their attention with clever, literate lyrics paired with pop music; they established a loyal following that only increases. Below, we’ll take you on a trip down memory lane when the band performed their epic hit, “All Day And All Of The Night” at the 1995 Concert for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
While the band was previously inducted 5 years before this supposed concert, the Kinks were asked to perform yet again to celebrate the museum’s official opening in Cleveland, which will remain its official residence.
Rock ‘n’ roll held its first big summit in Cleveland in 1995 – a historic, star-studded gathering that brought together the musical generations for a special night of music, fun, and celebration at the Stadium. Apart from The Kinks, dozens of musicians were also present at the event: Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Al Green, Heart, Bob Dylan, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, James Brown, John Fogerty, and a whole lot more.
You can watch the band’s performance in the video presented below.
