Billy Idol announces UK tour for 2018


Rock icon Billy Idol will bring his Live! 2018 Tour to the United Kingdom and across Europe which includes a date at Birmingham’s O2 Academy on 21st June with more dates to be revealed in the coming days.

The tour will be Idol’s first UK/European run since his hugely successful Kings & Queens of The Underground Tour in 2014 and 2015.

The Guardian described Idol’s 2014 and last headline performance in London at the Hammersmith Apollo in their 4-star review: ‘Wrapped in leather and soaked in nostalgia, the punk zealot serves up hard riffs with attitude…Idol struts and snarls, propelled by the conviction that rock is the cure for whatever ails you…. this show is nothing if not fantastic fun.’

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’.

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.
