The 10-show run, which begins 18 January 2019 and continues with dates throughout January and October, is the second residency show for the re-imagined property and the news comes just days before Idol is set to premiere his latest release, Vital Idol: Revitalized

From punk pioneer to global superstar, Idol has created an unparalleled niche in popular music and has remained a household name for more than three decades. Billy Idol: Las Vegas 2019 will feature material from throughout Idol's career, from Idol's days fronting the seminal British punk band Generation X to his hits the world has come to know and love, including "Rebel Yell," "White Wedding," "Dancing With Myself," and many more. Billy Idol will be joined by his longtime guitarist Steve Stevens and the rest of the Billy Idol band who in recent years have been touring the world's premier venues and festivals.

Billy Idol: Las Vegas 2019 dates:

"Billy Idol is an absolute icon in the music world – one of those artists that people of all ages around the world know the lyrics to every song. It's an honor to have him back at The Pearl at the Palms," said Palms Casino Resort General Manager Jon Gray. "The Billy Idol: Las Vegas 2019 residency perfectly complements the diverse range of musical acts we're booking at the Pearl and we know these shows will resonate with our audience."

Says Billy Idol, "Steve Stevens, my band and I have played Vegas many times and its always been a blast. We can't stay away! Las Vegas keeps us coming back for more. Let's make these shows at the Pearl Theater at Palms Casino Resort the best yet!"

Billy Idol was an early architect of the sound, style and fury of punk rock. His lip- curling sneer and fist-pumping persona vaulted him into the mainstream as one of MTV's first megastars, making him one of the most recognizable faces in pop music, while selling out arenas everywhere he played. He has sold 40 million albums while scoring numerous platinum albums worldwide, nine top 40 singles in the U.S. and 10 in the U.K. including "Dancing With Myself," "White Wedding," "Rebel Yell," "Mony Mony," "Eyes Without A Face," "Flesh For Fantasy" and "Cradle Of Love."

Idol was responsible for some of punk rock's most memorable, literate and evocative moments, and created a pioneering new sound by bringing the spirit of '77 to the dance floor, going on to fashion an immediately identifiable musical blueprint that integrates club-land throb, rockabilly desperation and rock 'n' roll decadence.

More than 30 years after his groundbreaking Vital Idol compilation cemented the vibrancy of the dance-rock remix genre in the second half of the 1980s, Idol's Revitalized collection, Vital Idol: Revitalized, features 11 brand-new remixes of Idol's most classic and enduring hits. Lending their hands to the Revitalized proceedings are electronic dance luminaries Moby, The Crystal Method and Paul Oakenfold as well as current innovators including RAC, Tropkillaz, Shiba San, Juan Maclean and CRAY.

Idol also hosts an exclusive SiriusXM show, Billy Idol's Live Transmission, that can be heard on SiriusXM's 1st Wave, channel 33.For all Billy Idol information, visit BillyIdol.net.
