Joining Billy Idol on all dates is Melbourne rockers The Delta Riggs. The stomping four-piece are no strangers to Aussie rock fans, with their latest single ‘Reality’ released just last month. In September, the Delta Riggs will head to the UK for a series of shows in support of their upcoming fourth album Modern Pressure, due out Sept 6, before joining Idol on stage next Jan/Feb.
Also performing in Brisbane and Sydney are Sydney’s The Kids. Channelling their teenage angst into their music, The Kids’ rage fuelled rock embraces the punk and grunge greats of the past, with their inspirations ranging from Nirvana, Dead Kennedys and Bad Brains, to Generation X, Black Flag and the Sex Pistols. Check out singles ‘I Just Wanna Be Happy’ and ‘I Thought My Family Was Rich’.
