Bryan Adams, Billy Idol team up for first-ever joint US tour
For the first time ever, rock icons Billy Idol and Bryan Adams are all set to share the stage. Are these the best days of our lives? Looks like it. The artists, who have sold over 100 million albums combined, are going on a joint tour in the US, with stops in eight states. The Live Nation-produced co-headlining tour will flag off on August 1 in Gilford, New Hampshire, and wrap up on August 12 in Bristow, Virginia.
Show tickets will go on sale beginning on May 3, Friday at 10 am local time. A pre-sale for Citi cardholders begins Wednesday at 10 am local time on Live Nation.
Adams had released his album 'Shine A Light' earlier this year which featured Jennifer Lopez on a single 'That's How Strong Our Love Is'. His 14th studio album, 'Shine A Light' was his first record since 2015's 'Get Up'. Adams also worked on a score to a musical adaptation of the 1990 movie 'Pretty Woman' that opened on Broadway in March.
