Still going strong, rock legend Billy Idol is currently taking his lauded live show back on the road with a run of headline tour dates, including Rams Head Live! in Baltimore on Wednesday, May 3.
Performing a career-spanning set, including a myriad of hits and new music from his latest EPs, Idol will be joined by his longtime band featuring his collaborator and lead guitarist of over 40 years, Steve Stevens.
Last year, Billy released his latest project, The Cage EP, via Dark Horse Records. The new music follows Idol’s 2021 The Roadside EP, which received praise from fans and critics alike. As on The Roadside EP, Idol once again joins forces in the studio with Stevens. The Cage EP features production contributions from Tommy English (Kacey Musgraves, BØRNS), Zakk Cervini (Blink 182, Machine Gun Kelly), Joe Janiak (Ellie Goulding, Adam Lambert), and Butch Walker (Green Day, Weezer), while English also co-wrote three of the EP’s tracks with Idol and Stevens.
Watch the Steve Sebring-directed official music video for “Cage” by Billy Idol on YouTube:
For 46 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 frontman for Generation X, between 1977 and 1981 Idol emerged with three albums that made positivity, emotional depth, and high pop synonymous with punk rock. In 1982, Idol embarked on a remarkable transatlantic/trans-genre 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.
On Jan. 13, Billy was honored with the first Hollywood Walk of Fame Star of 2023. The ceremony included guest speakers Henry Rollins and Shepard Fairey.
