If you’re a fan of the legendary Billy Idol, you’re in luck as he’ll be appearing at Birmingham’s Resorts World Arena in October.
The Roadside Tour 2022 will be Billy’s first UK appearance in 6 years and will feature some of his new music as well as a stack of timeless classics. Billy will be supported by special guests Television, including original frontman Tom Verlaine.
The global lockdown of 2020 gave Billy time to reflect and thoughts turned to his near-fatal motorcycle accident of 1990, how he dealt with it and how it related to the current crisis. “It seemed quite logical and natural to write something about my motorcycle accident,” he says. “I may have been saying, well, this is what people go through when they are in trouble. I think I was unconsciously making that connection.
“Certainly, the motorcycle accident was the catharsis, the wake-up moment. A little bit of me got left by the side of that road. Maybe I left behind the irreverent, youthful Billy and opened the door for a more attentive father and more sensitive musician. Something did get left by the roadside, but it was not necessarily a bad thing in the end.”
