April 18, 2023—On April 8, rock legend Billy Idol and his band including guitarist Steve Stevens, performed the first ever concert at the Hoover Dam, which straddles the Colorado River and the Nevada/Arizona border. The once in a lifetime concert, which featured special guests Alison Mosshart (The Kills, The Dead Weather), Steve Jones (Sex Pistols) and Tony Kanal (No Doubt), was filmed for a forthcoming concert film produced by Lastman Media and scheduled for theatrical release through Encore Nights later this year. Further details on the film to come soon.
Idol’s Hoover Dam concert, performed in front of only 250 fans, illuminated the surrounding Black Canyon of the Colorado River and the Mike O’Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge.

For 46 years Billy Idol has been one of the faces and voices of rock’n’roll. Between 1977 and 1981, Idol released three albums with Generation X as the camera-ready front man. In 1982, he embarked on a transatlantic/trans-genre solo career that integrated the bold and simple lines of punk and rock’n’roll decadence. Last year, Idol released his latest project The Cage EP via Dark Horse Records. The new music follows Idol’s 2021 The Roadside EP, which received praise from fans and critics alike.
