Seminal rocker Billy Idol has announced his much awaited live return to the UK this November. The punk and rock icon will play in Birmingham, London and Manchester – his first UK appearances since his unforgettable performance at Download 2010 where he triumphed in torrential rain and had the crowd eating out of his hand.

The newly announced dates will come soon after the release of two major new Billy Idol projects. In late October, Idol will drop his first new album in almost 10 years, produced by Trevor Horn. And on 7th October, Simon and Schuster UK will release Idol’s much anticipated autobiography, ‘Dancing With Myself.’

Idol’s band includes his long-time lead guitarist Steve Stevens, Stephen McGrath on bass, Billy Morrison on guitar, Eric Eldenius on drums and Paul Trudeau on keyboards.
