Billy Idol Announces Concert at KettleHouse Amphitheater
Iconic rocker Billy Idol will perform live in concert along the banks of the Blackfoot at KettleHouse Amphitheater on August 31, 2023. Idol will be joined by his longtime band including his collaborator and lead guitarist of over forty years, Steve Stevens.
With his signature punk rock style, powerhouse vocals, and a catalog of unforgettable hits, Billy Idol has cemented his status as a legend in rock history. His 1982 self titled debut studio album was certified gold and included the hit single “White Wedding.” Idol’s second studio album, Rebel Yell (1983), became a major commercial hit, featuring chart-topping singles such as “Rebel Yell” and “Eyes Without a Face.” The album was certified double platinum and each of the singles had accompanying music videos which were very successful on MTV.
He’s since released 6 more studio albums including Whiplash Smile (1986), Charmed Life (1990), Cyberpunk (1993), Devil’s Playground (2005), Happy Holidays (2006), and Kings & Queens of the Underground (2014). He released the EP The Cage in 2022.
He was Grammy nominated three years (1985, 1987, 1991) for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance and won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Video from a Film in 1990 for “Cradle of Love.” In January, Idol was honored with the first Hollywood Walk of Fame Star of 2023.

About Billy Idol
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.
