Billy Idol - Rebel Yell - LIVE [HQ]

«I definitely took punk with me wherever I've gone. That was the whole idea really. I wanted to transform my music, but I didn't want to ever lose sight of that punk rock attitude. Whether we turned to hard rock or disco or whatever the hell else we did over the years, that helped give the music a spirit it would not have had if I hadn't come out of the punk movement!» - Billy IDOL Billy sounds better than ever and has incredible energy and charisma. The band are phenomenal too, especially Steve Stevens on guitar. The concert was filmed in high definition so this blu-ray should look and sound superb. Originally filmed for the US television series Sound Stage and broadcast in July 2009, this 70-minute, 12-song DVD showcases Billy Idol in concert at the Congress Theater in Chicago, IL. At 54 years of age, Idol is arguably in the best shape of his career. Not an ounce of fat can be found on his chiselled, sweat-soaked body. Alongside his partner in crime, guitarist Steve Stevens, drummer Brian Tichy (Pride & Glory, Gilby Clarke) keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Alice Cooper, Dream Theater) and bassist Stephen McGrath, Idol truly is one of a kind. He introduces `Rebel Yell' as "The New American National Anthem." Despite the fact that `Dancing With Myself' and `Flesh For Fantasy' are `80s staples, Idol has his band jam on them in a free-flow format that makes them seem fresh as the morning dew.
