The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas welcomes back rock icon Billy Idol for a five-show run, Friday, Nov. 11, Saturday, Nov. 12, Wednesday, Nov. 16, Friday, Nov. 18 and Saturday, Nov. 19. The highly anticipated announcement comes on the heels of a successful, sold-out residency at the resort in 2021 as well as standout Las Vegas shows in 2020.
For forty-five years, Billy Idol has been one of the faces and voices of rock’n’roll, with an artistic resume to match the brilliant light of the image. First as the camera-ready front man for Generation X, between 1977 and 1981 Billy emerged with three albums that made positivity, emotional depth, and high pop synonymous with punk rock. In 1982, Billy embarked on a remarkable transatlantic/transgenre solo career that integrated clubland throb, wide-screen depth and drama, rockabilly desperation, the bold and simple lines of punk, and rock’n’roll decadence. 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,” “Eyes Without A Face,” “Flesh For Fantasy” and “Cradle Of Love.”
Billy Idol is joined onstage by his friend and collaborator since 1981, guitarist and co-songwriter Steve Stevens. For 40 years – 40 years! – Steve has been Billy Idol’s sonic assassin and master blender of tones and textures, the thinking man’s shredder and the shredding man’s Picasso.
