Rebel Rock Street Show

April 29, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 11:30 pm

Headliner – BILLY IDOL

Featuring original guitarist Steve Stevens

46 years into his recording career, Billy Idol is still the ever-moving myth, the intellectual/feral internet-age bookworm/caveman of our dreams, finding modern language for the fiery, Eddie Cochran-meets-Ziggy Stardust rip’n’roar that he’s been making since he first stepped on stage. And that’s all on The Cage EP, Idol’s latest on Dark Horse Records; four tracks that engage you like classic Idol, yet keep your eyebrows raised like that stuff you heard coming out of that teenagers’ car that just rolled down the street.


It’s funny; maybe the name really did define him. 46 years ago when everyone was sniffing the nihilistic glue and giving themselves snotty little punk rock names, it was supposed to be “Idle” – but someone wrote it wrong, and William Broad became Billy Idol instead. And that’s what he became: An idol. But this idol is not made of stone, and he’s certainly not stuck on a pedestal to be done, dusted, and dusty. Billy Idol insists on being today’s news, not just yesterday’s memory. He fire-breathes dreams and nightmares, he delivers clubland croon and Bolan-blessed cool, and he moves through the desert, sluices through the cities, speeds across oceans, hills, mesas, and time. And if you think Idol is Idle, you haven’t heard The Cage EP.



Making a strident impact across music, television, and pop culture, Michaels stands out as an iconic songwriter, performer, and business magnate which also includes real estate, speaking engagements and numerous successful branding partnerships throughout his illustrious career spanning over three generations. He has over 100 million records, digital singles and streams worldwide, notched numerous Top 10 singles including the #1 crossover hit, “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” and sold millions of tickets worldwide.


Michaels is a passionate humanitarian and philanthropist. His Life Rocks Foundation supports organizations such as the ADA National Network for Americans with disabilities; JDRF, the world’s largest nonprofit funder of type 1 diabetes research; St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Veteran and Pet causes and many more.

Once scanned you will receive an entry bracelet which you must keep on at all times. If we scan an e-ticket and it notes that the ticket has already been scanned, we can only assume it is a copy and not the original, therefore you will not be allowed entry unless you purchase a ticket.
