Billy Idol in Denver Colorado at the Mission Ballroom 2023

My first Billy Idol show ever!!! And what a show it was ?.

At 67, the man and his band did not skip a beat.  His attire, stage presence, and extensive list of top hits including Rebel Yell (Billy's favorite) and Flesh for Fantasy (my favorite), brought not only a 1980s nostalgia but also a tremendous relief from the soulless wasteland of today's music.  Complemented with Steve Steven's impeccable guitar playing, I can safely say that I have not experienced such a wonderful night of unabashed rock in forever, if ever: thank you, Billy!!! 

If I had the cash, I would fly to Florida to see you again on this tour.  However, without my friends, the vibe wouldn't feel the same. 

See you in 2024?!!!

Set list for the Mission Ballroom, Denver, Colorado 2023 show.

More than just memories though, it is the indelible mark

  • I have a dear friend named David R. who's recently become a huge blues rock guitar fan.  In fact, he purchased a newer ZZ Top CD and an older Johnny Winter/Rick Derringer live album circa 1970 to turn me on to what are some of his favorites.  I would like to return the favor.  However, since he travels a lot and does not have access to a fine CD player (I am a HiFi snob) and because ...
