For forty-five years, Billy Idol has been one of biggest faces and voices of rock’n’roll, so it was with a great honor that Arizona Bike Week 2023 announced Idol will headline one of the RockYard Concert Series nights when Arizona Bike Week returns to WestWorld of Scottsdale on Wednesday, March 29th through Sunday, April 2nd, 2023.
The Hard Rock Superstar commands the stage Thursday, March 30th starting at 8:30pm.
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, he 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. Today he still makes gliding, thumping, cinematic songs about sin, redemption and the love of rock’n’roll.
AZ Bike Week concert goers can also expect to hear some of his new work from The Roadside and The Cage, his latest two four-song EPs released in 2021 and 2022.
AZ Bike Week recently announced legendary rock band STAIND will also hit the stage at The RockYard on Saturday, April 1st, 2023.
Single Concert and All Concert Passes are on sale now for the four-night music festival in the RockYard. Visit www.AZBikeWeek.com for tickets.
