Fans of rock icon Billy Idol will have the chance to see the artist live once again this spring for his 16-show headlining stint!
The trek is set to kick off in Scottsdale, AZ on March 30 and will feature performances at a variety of theatres, amphitheaters and festivals in major cities such as Atlanta, Baltimore and more. The legend’s run also includes an appearance at the Cruel World Festival in Pasadena, CA on May 20.
Idol will deliver a career spanning set to concert-goers that encompasses a myriad of the “Eyes Without A Face” singer’s hits, in addition to tracks from his latest EPs. Idol’s longtime band will join him for the tour, featuring Steve Stevens, his collaborator and lead guitarist of more than 40 years. Tickets are available to purchase now at billyidol.net.
The tour announcement comes on the heels of Idol’s honor of earning a Hollywood Walk of Fame Star on Jan. 13 — the first Hollywood Walk of Fame Star of 2023. The induction ceremony featured Henry Rollins and Shepard Fairey as guest speakers.
“I’d like to start off by thanking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and all of the fans for coming here because you are the best and quite simply, I’m here today really because of you. It’s because of your love that I’m here. You’ve supported me all this time — 47 years now I’ve been doing this,” said Idol at the ceremony.
He continued, “It really is crazy to find myself being honored in this way. Forty-seven years of doing this after I started in Generation X and 35 years after coming here — I just really could never have imagined anything like this.”

In 2022, Idol delivered his most recent project via Dark Horse Records, The Cage. The EP features production efforts from Tommy English, Zakk Cervini, Joe Janiak and Butch Walker. English also had a hand in the writing process, co-penning three of the EP’s songs alongside Idol and Stevens.
