Event will feature an intimate performance by Idol and his band
Billy Idol is the subject of a new iHeartRadio exclusive series. iHeartRadio ICONS: Billy Idol is an exclusive concert on Tuesday, September 21st at 7 pm ET/4 pm PT. Hosted by Jim Kerr, the event will feature an intimate live performance and interview from Idol at the iHeartRadio Theater NYC.
LiveXLive will exclusively livestream the event which can also be heard across iHeartMedia’s classic rock, classic hits, variety/mix and select rock stations nationwide.
The event is in celebration of The Roadside EP, which includes the new single “Bitter Taste.” The EP will be released on CD and LP on September 17th on Dark Horse Records and was produced by Butch Walker (Green Day, Weezer). Featuring Idol’s longtime lead guitarist and co-writer Steve Stevens, the EP is Idol’s first release of new music in almost seven years.
For 45 years, 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 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.
