Welch, Minn. (February 25, 2019) Rock icon BILLY IDOL returns for more shows on his Live! 2019 Summer Tour this July.
On July 6, Idol, Steve Stevens and the rest of the Billy Idol band will perform at Treasure Island. Tickets go on sale at Ticketmaster.com and the Treasure Island Box Office on Friday, March 1st with a special presale for BillyIdol.net subscribers beginning Wednesday February 27th
Idol’s Summer 2019 tour follows a run of sold out theatre shows in March and April where Idol will perform as a duo with his longtime guitarist Steve Stevens (also the musical director of the Billy Idol band.) Last year found Idol extensively touring North America and Europe prior to releasing a remix record of his 80s hits entitled Vital Idol: Revitalized. That record, released on September 28, 2018 debuted at #9 on the Billboard Dance Chart.
Billy Idol was an early architect of the sound, style, and fury of punk rock. His lip- curling sneer and fist-pumping persona vaulted him into the mainstream as one of MTV’s first megastars, making him one of the most recognizable faces in pop music, while selling out arenas everywhere he played. He has sold 40 million albums while scoring numerous platinum albums worldwide, nine top forty singles in the U.S. and 10 in the U.K. including “Dancing With Myself, “White Wedding,” “Rebel Yell,” “Mony Mony,” “Eyes Without A Face,” “Flesh For Fantasy,” and “Cradle Of Love.”
Billy was responsible for some of punk rock’s most memorable, literate, and evocative moments and created a pioneering new sound by bringing the spirit of ’77 to the dance floor, going on to fashion an immediately identifiable musical blueprint that integrates club-land throb, rockabilly desperation, and rock’n’roll decadence.
Idol returned to the spotlight in the fall of 2014 with two high profile releases that marked the latest chapter in the long and remarkable story of a musician, an inventor, a survivor, a father, a son, a man who returned from the brink, and a rebel whose yells made the mainstream sit up and pay attention.
Idol’s New York Times bestselling autobiography Dancing With Myself is an electric, intelligent, brutally honest and entirely self-written account of Billy Idol’s journey to fame, from his early days as front man of the pioneering UK punk band Generation X to a long and often decadent life-style.
