TORONTO, ON – Today, Roxodus Music Fest announced that punk pioneer and global superstar Billy Idol, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Blondie, have been added to the star-studded festival lineup. Both Idol and Blondie will hit the stage alongside Kid Rock, Nickelback, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Alice Cooper, Peter Frampton, and Cheap Trick during the three-day concert series running July 11-13, 2019.
“Billy Idol and Blondie are fantastic additions to the lineup. Billy Idol was one of the great artists of the original music video era, while Blondie was one of the most successful all American New Wave acts,” said Alan Cross, famed broadcaster and ambassador of Roxodus Music Fest. “Roxodus is fortunate to offer both acts for 2019.”
Billy Idol has left an indelible mark in popular music for over three decades as one of MTV’s first megastars, making him one of the most recognizable faces in music. He has sold 40 million albums worldwide with nine top forty 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.”
Blondie kickstarted the early American new-wave scene in the ‘70s and now over four decades later they are still known for their high energy punk songs. Blondie’s chart-topping success and rare longevity led to an induction into the Rock and Roll Music Hall of Fame, an NME Godlike Genius Award, a Q Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music and to date have sold more than 45 million albums worldwide.
