B illy Comes To The Fraze

By J.T. Ryder

Rock Star Billy Idol

Billy Idol (which is a far cooler name than his given name: William Michael Albert Broad) will be rockin’ the cradle of love right into the Fraze Pavilion Friday, September 3 at 8 p.m. Idol gained recognition back in the 1970s as a member of the punk band Generation X. After releasing several albums and appearing in the movie DOA, Idol took his leave from the band, embarking on a solo career that immediately skyrocketed him to international fame. With such classic punk/dance cuts as “Dancing With Myself,” “White Wedding” and “Eye’s Without A Face,” Idol secured his position in the pantheon of the MTV video stars. While other acts of Idol‘s era faded rather quickly, he has received constant airplay over the years. In fact, his image can be seen in several movies, including a cameo as one of Jim Morrison’s entourage in Oliver Stone’s The Doors. Tickets are $35 for lawn seats and $55 for orchestra seating. Tickets can be purchased at any Ticketmaster outlet or by visiting online at Fraze.com. The Fraze is located at 695 Lincoln Park Blvd., Kettering.
