From punk pioneer to global superstar, BILLY IDOL has created an unparalleled niche in popular music and remained a household name for over three decades. He is respected as the original punk rocker who long ago found a way to take that sneering punk attitude into the pop and rock mainstream, carving out songs that have lasted a lifetime.
Still as vital as ever, Idol will take to the road in the Summer of 2013 giving fans across the generations an opportunity to chant along as he delivers his endless catalogue of hits. In tow for the tour, he’s got longtime partner and legend in his own right, Steve Stevens, on guitar.
As part of the infamous Bromley Contingent and a fan of the Sex Pistols, Billy Idol was inspired to front the popular British punk band Generation X from 1976 until the band’s break-up in 1981. He then decided to try his luck in America. At this point, Idol hooked up with guitar genius Steve Stevens and a crucial musical partnership was forged. From there on out, Billy churned out many hits including “Rebel Yell,” “White Wedding,” “Dancing With Myself,” “Flesh For Fantasy,” “Hot In the City,” “Eyes Without A Face,” and “Cradle of Love” among others.
