Billy Idol is Returning to Las Vegas in Support of his Self Titled Reissue & MORE

If you haven’t seen Billy Idol, then you are absolutely missing out! We caught him in 2016 and 2019, and the former Generation X singer never leaves us hanging!

Billy is coming back to Las Vegas from October 20 – 28, performing at The Chelsea inside of the Cosmopolitan in support of his July reissue of his debut self-titled album. The reissue includes the original ten tracks we know and love as well as his complete August 1982 concert at The Roxy in Hollywood. If that isn’t enough for you, you can also hear the previously unreleased 12 minute Clubland Extended Remix of the classic “White Wedding”.

If that isn’t enough Billy for you, fans this fall can expect a released concert film of his April performance at the Hoover Dam, which made history as he was the first to perform a concert like this on the dam. The once in a lifetime event consisted of two unique sets full of hits, one with a full band, consisting of legends Alison Mosshart (The Kills/The Dead Weather), Steve Jones (The Sex Pistols/Generation Sex), and Tony Kanal (No Doubt) and one acoustic set with his musical partner of over forty years, Steve Stevens.

Keep your eyes peeled for more information on how to catch a public screening of the show, and in the meantime, we’ll catch you in the crowd at The Chelsea!

Stephanie " Stephy " Muzio (formerly Hayward) - Public Relations / Writer/ Photographer and Co-Founder of ZRockR Magazine Co-host of ZRockR Magazine LIVE! Stephy was raised on rock and roll. Originally from Illinois, Stephy is the daughter of an aspiring metal guitarist and a former rock n roll radio dj. Stephy’s first concert at the tender age of 8 was Rob Zombie at the original Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas, where she happily threw horns up and sang along to "Dragula" with the best of them ( she incidentally loves horror films too!) . She performed with the VGA choir at the 2007 Video Game Awards show at Mandalay Bay when it was hosted by Samuel L Jackson, sharing the stage with the likes of Foo Fighters as well as Kid Rock. An LVA alum, when she isn’t singing or playing herself (she plays a few different instruments), she is out in support of the local scene and at her friends gigs around the southwest and even when she is back home in Illinois! She has written as well as done some photography previously for a couple of smaller zines including Vegas SoundZ when it was in print. Stephy takes the adage of ” If it’s too loud that is just too damn bad! ” to heart- after all- she was raised around screaming guitars, thunderous drums, production studios and only Led Zeppelin and Nirvana played extremely loud would put her to sleep as a kid! Stephy is a large part of the backbone of ZRockR.
