Bill Idol To Appear at Foxwoods Resort Casino on June 1 Tickets on Sale Friday

Event Date/Time

May 22, 2013 to Jun 1, 2013
6:00 pm until 8:00 pm

Description

 

Mashantucket, Conn. (March 18, 2013) – Foxwoods® Resort Casino is proud to announce rock legend Billy Idol will headline the MGM Grand Theater on Saturday, June 1. Tickets priced at $40, $50 and $60 go on sale Friday, March 22 at 10am.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.foxwoods.com, by calling the Foxwoods’ Box Office at

800-200-2882, or Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000. Tickets are also available by visiting the box office.

From punk pioneer to global superstar, Billy Idol has created an unparalleled niche in popular music and remained a household name for over three decades. He is respected as the original punk rocker who long ago found a way to take that sneering punk attitude into the pop and rock mainstream, carving out songs that have lasted a lifetime. 

Still as vital as ever, Idol will take to the road in the Summer of 2013 giving fans across the generations an opportunity to chant along as he delivers his endless catalogue of hits. In tow for the tour, he’s got longtime partner and legend in his own right, Steve Stevens, on guitar.

As part of the infamous Bromley Contingent and a fan of the Sex Pistols, Billy Idol was inspired to front the popular British punk band Generation X from 1976 until the band’s break-up in 1981. He then decided to try his luck in America. At this point, Idol hooked up with guitar genius Steve Stevens and a crucial musical partnership was forged. From there on out, Billy churned out many hits including “Rebel Yell,” “White Wedding,” “Dancing With Myself,” "Flesh For Fantasy," “Hot In the City,” "Eyes Without A Face," and "Cradle of Love" among others.

For more information on ticket pre-sale visit BillyIdol.net. Fans who register for presale at BillyIdol.net are automatically entered to win incredible Idol prizes including the chance to meet Billy before his show at the upcoming Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.Other upcoming Foxwoods entertainment includes:
