Cheap Trick / The Angels/ Billy Idol Australian/NZ Dates Announced

BILLY IDOL ANNOUNCES 2015 AUSTRALIAN & NEW ZEALAND TOUR –
a day on the green wineries & indoor shows with special guests CHEAP TRICK & THE ANGELS

Rock icon BILLY IDOL is returning to Australia and New Zealand for his first concert tour of Australia since 2002 and his first of New Zealand since 1987.

The original punk turned global superstar will perform indoor shows and a day on the green winery events in March and April 2015. Idol’s band includes long-time collaborator and lead-guitarist Steve Stevens.

Idol and his band will launch a European tour in November and a North American tour in January that will continue to Australia and New Zealand in March 2015. The full list of tour dates and on sale times is below.

To celebrate having Idol finally back in Australia, promoters Frontier Touring and Roundhouse Entertainment have put together a cracking tour line-up featuring special guests Cheap Trick and in some cities, The Angels and Choirboys.

Since CHEAP TRICK burst out of Rockford, Illinois in the late 70’s, their irresistible blend of pop, punk and metal has resulted in classics like ‘I Want You To Want Me’, ‘Surrender’, ‘Dream Police’, ‘If You Want My Love’ and the long-running #1 chart-topper ‘The Flame’. Along the way they’ve notched up more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sales, appearances on 30 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum recording awards. They have been cited as an inspiration for countless bands including Green Day, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters and Urge Overkill.

THE ANGELS have celebrated their 40th anniversary with the May release of two commemorative career-spanning albums; ‘The Angels Volume 1 – 40 Greatest STUDIO Hits’ and ‘The Angels Volume 2 – 40 Greatest LIVE Hits’ (out through Liberation) backed up with a predominantly sold-out tour stretching from May through August. Since joining in 2011, frontman Dave Gleeson has totally re-energised the band, prompting two albums of new material ‘Take It To The Streets’ (2012 – their first studio album in 14 years) and ‘Talk The Talk’ (2014) and a renewed love of touring resulting in constant sold out shows around the country.
