Tribute to Billy Idol – with Craig Knight as Billy
Very few decades were as musically iconic as the 1980s, when Rock, Heavy Metal,
New Wave, Pop, Dance, and a variety of other genres came blasting from radio
airwaves into our living rooms. With the introduction of the music video via MTV in 1981, music was forever changed -- and Billy Idol was one of the first recording artists to take advantage of this new medium. In fact, music videos proved to be an integral
component of Idol’s enduring success – which has included selling over 20 million
albums and garnering 3 Grammy nominations albums over his 4-decade career. Idol,
who first achieved fame as a founding member of the punk band Generation X -- is as
culturally relevant as ever. He is currently on a world tour and press junket to support
both his highest debuting album to date, “Kings and Queens of the Underground,” as
well his autobiography, “Dancing With Myself,” (which reached number 5 on the New
York Times celebrity best seller list in November 2014).
Generation Idol formed in 2013 in Southern California after Knight relocated to the
West Coast from Las egas and promptly recruited a consummate band of seasoned
musicians to help fulfill his musical vision. Based in Orange County CA, Generation
Idol is currently taking the tribute band world by storm with their furious ascent from
novice support act to renowned headliner in less than a year.
Veteran Las egas performer/impersonator Craig Knight uncannily personifies the oft-
sneering swagger and rugged baritone of Billy Idol in his aptly named band, Generation Idol (a nod to both Generation X and Idol’s fan club). An amazing performer, vocalist and spot on look-alike, Knight’s faithful tribute to Billy Idol is a nostalgic flashback that transports you right back to the “totally awesome 80’s.” Vocalist Craig Knight had an extended residency with Planet Hollywood’s “Superstars on Stage” show at Las Vegas’ V- Theater, and has performed for Vince Neil’s Las Vegas Outlaws Arena Football League halftime show at the Thomas & Mack Arena. Craig is supported by virtuoso guitarist and YouTube sensation Johnny DeMarco as “Steve Stevens,” a professional Disney musician who performs regularly with their famous Mad T Party and Five & Dime bands. Craig and Johnny are joined by the grooving fret-work of tribute veteran Sammy Burke on bass and backing vocals, and the sonorous drumming of Fred Shook on drums and backing vocals.
Come join the “Billy Idol Generation” for an unforgettable night of classic music
and hear some of the stories that inspired some of Idol’s songs. Hit the dance
floor and move to such mega-hits as, “Mony, Mony,” “Dancing With Myself,” “White
Wedding,” “Rebel Yell,” “Cradle Of Love,” “Hot In The City,” “Flesh For Fantasy” and
“Eyes Without A Face.” After the show, meet the band and take pictures with the
nation’s premiere Billy Idol impersonator, Craig Knight.
