Next week, Billy Idol has a couple of very special events planned for Los Angeles to help celebrate the EP and its vinyl release. On Wednesday, Nov. 9, Idol and longtime collaborator, co-writer and guitarist Steve Stevens will play an acoustic set at Amoeba Hollywood, a few hours before taking the stage at the Roxy for an intimate Sunset Strip concert featuring special guests Huddy and Willem Wolfe.

Per a news release:

Tickets for The Roxy show go on sale Friday, November 4th HERE with a password only accessible via Idol’s social media. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit cancer treatments for Mitzi Spallas, Idol’s hair and makeup artist for more than thirty years.

To guarantee admission to the Amoeba Hollywood performance, fans will need to purchase a copy of The Cage EP on vinyl at the store on the date of the set. Additional info can be found HERE.
