BILLY. FUCKING. IDOL. Excuse me for being crass, but my life simultaneously began and ended in a single night this past week. As a child, I fell in love with Rebel Yell that my mom owned on cassette and I listened to it religiousy on a mustard-yellow Sony Walkman with those sport headphones.
On Dec. 15, local radio station X96 threw their 8th Annual Nightmare Before Xmas Concert with Billy Idol and special guests Bleachers and Priory at The Complex.
Billy Idol kicked off his hour long set with “Dancing with Myself.” That’s when I nearly lost my pulse. Other huge hits he played through the night included “Rebel Yell,” “White Wedding,” “Mony Mony” and surprisingly “Generation X.”
