Concert Information

Rock icon Billy Idol will bring his 2023 Tour to Cincinnati, OH for a performance at PNC Pavilion on Saturday, May 6. Performing a career spanning set including his myriad of hits and music from his latest two EPs, Idol will be joined by his longtime band including his collaborator and lead guitarist of over forty years, Steve Stevens.

Idol’s Live 2023 tour comes on the heels of an extensive run of worldwide dates in 2022, featuring stops in South America and in arenas across the U.K. and the E.U.

On January 13, Idol was honored with the first Hollywood Walk of Fame Star of 2023. The ceremony included guest speakers Henry Rollins and Shepard Fairey. Watch/share his full induction speech HERE via Variety.

Last year Idol released his latest project The Cage EP via Dark Horse Records. The new music follows the release of Idol’s 2021 The Roadside EP, which included the Top 15 hit “Bitter Taste” and received praise from fans and critics alike. As on The Roadside EP, Idol is joined on the new project by Steve Stevens. Watch the video for “Cage” HERE, directed by Steve Sebring.


For 46 years, Idol has been one of the faces and voices of rock and roll with an artistic resume to match the brilliant light of the image. First, as the camera-ready frontman for Generation X between 1977 and 1981, Idol emerged with three albums that made positivity, emotional depth, and high pop synonymous with punk rock. In 1982, Idol embarked on a remarkable transatlantic/transgenre solo career that integrated clubland throb, wide-screen depth and drama, rockabilly desperation, the bold and simple lines of punk and rock and roll decadence.
