Billy Idol: More Bio, More Album, More Tour
English rock star Billy Idol, energized by the upcoming release of his first new album in years, has announced at least 14 tour dates for 2015 in support of Kings & Queens of the Underground. It’s been nearly a decade since Idol dropped Devil’s Playground, and over 30 years since he achieved superstardom with Rebel Yell, so Idol’s fans should expect just about anything from a release that officially gives him original releases in four different decades. We’ve been screaming “more! more! more!” all this time, and Idol keeps taking care of us.
The Kings & Queens of the Underground tour dates begin January 21 at the House of Blues in New Orleans; he’ll move up the east coast through Atlanta (1/22), Philadelphia (1/24), DC (1/25), New York (1/28) and Boston (1/31) before crossing the border. He’ll have three different dates in Canada as he heads west, also hitting Chicago (2/7) and Denver (2/9) in the process. He’ll finish on by heading south along the Pacific with concerts in Seattle (2/13), Oakland (2/15), and two shows in Los Angeles (2/18-19). After all these years, you still can’t break Billy Idol down; in fact, you’d have a hard time keeping up with him while he crosses North America, bringing his vintage punk attitude and endless energy to a theater near you.
