Billy Idol and Bryan Adams team up for new tour
Two rock icons will soon be in the same place at the same time — or, rather, many places at the same. Bryan Adams and Billy Idol are going on tour together this summer through eight American cities, starting in New Hampshire and ending in Virginia.
This will be the first time Adams and Idol have ever played together on stage. Such team-up tours might be getting more common; last month, ’90s alt-rock icons Bush and Live announced they would be embarking on a joint tour as well.
Idol was an early architect of the sound, style, and fury of punk rock, made iconic in songs like “Rebel Yell,” “Dancing With Myself, and “White Wedding.” Adams is a singer-songwriter best known for hits like “Summer of ’69.”
Tickets for the co-headlining tour will go on sale to the public on Friday at 10 a.m. local time at Live Nation’s website. Citi card members will have access to presale tickets from Wednesday at 10 a.m. local time to Thursday at 10 p.m.
