bryanadamsBilly Idol and Bryan Adams will hit the road together for a brief co-headlining tour... Can the Summer of ’19 measure up to the Summer of ’69? It just might! The '80s stars announced they'll play eight shows in the Northeast over two weeks in August with a stop at Jones Beach on Sunday, Aug 4 - tix: http://BRYANADAMS.jonesbeach.com

Two rock icons will soon be in the same place at the same time — or, rather, many places at the same. This will be the first time Adams and Idol have ever played together on stage.

Earlier this year, Adams released Shine a Light, his 14th studio album, which featured duet with Jennifer Lopez called "That's How Strong Our Love Is." It's his first record since 2015's Get Up. Adams also penned the score to a musical adaptation of the 1990 movie Pretty Woman that opened on Broadway in March... Idol last year delivered Vital Idol: Revitalized, containing remixes of most of the tracks found on the 1985 album, which itself was a collection of remixes of songs from his first two solo records. Modern EDM producers gave their takes on tracks like "White Wedding," "Dancing With Myself" and "Eyes Without a Face." Moby and Idol's son Willem Wolfe worked on songs that were used as bonus tracks.

In January, the “Heaven” singer — who is currently in the midst of his Shine a Light tour — surprised the audience at Broadway’s Pretty Woman: The Musical by taking the stage to perform a medley of songs from the hit stage musical adaptation of the 1990 romantic comedy. In addition to tackling the soulful ballad “You and I” solo on his acoustic guitar, Adams was also joined by the show’s full company for the more upbeat tune, “Together Forever.”.. The show marked Adams’ debut as a Broadway songwriter; the 59-year-old composed its score alongside his longtime songwriting partner Jim Vallance.

Idol was an early architect of the sound, style, and fury of punk rock, made iconic in songs like “Rebel Yell,” “Dancing With Myself, and “White Wedding.” Adams is a singer-songwriter best known for hits like “Summer of ’69.”
