Billy Idol: State Line Live from the Hoover Dam Gets UK Cinema Release

Buzz, Film

Kaleidoscope Entertainment are delighted to share the news that the spectacular special event, Billy Idol: State Line, will be in cinemas nationwide for ONE NIGHT ONLY on November 14th. The intimate star-studded concert will also be available on DVD, Blu-Ray and UK digital platforms from December 11th and features a career-spanning run of timeless hits including ‘Dancing with Myself’, ‘Eyes Without a Face’, ‘Rebel Yell’ and ‘White Wedding’.

Immortalised for the big screen, Billy Idol: State Line sees legendary punk icon, Billy Idol, making history by playing the first ever live concert in front of the world famous Hoover Dam. Performing two unique sets in front of only 250 fans: an electrifying full band concert at sunset with special guests that illuminated the surrounding Black Canyon of the Colorado River, and an acoustic duo set on the roof of the powerhouse directly at the foot of Hoover Dam on the Nevada/Arizona state line.

The hell-raising rock star is joined on stage by his longtime band including his collaborator and lead guitarist of over 40 years, Steve Stevens, with special guest stars including The Kills’ Alison Mosshart, former Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones, and No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal.

“Our show at Hoover Dam was a monumental and surreal career highlight,” notes Idol. “I’m excited to get State Line out into the world. With this film we set out to highlight the continued importance of one of the most inspiring infrastructural achievements of the 20th Century, while also bringing the power of rock n roll to a stunning, magical location. I think we more than succeeded on both accounts.”

Billy Idol: State Line is produced by Lastman Media for Vertigo Live in collaboration with the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas and will be distributed theatrically in the U.K. and worldwide (excl. USA) via Kaleidoscope Entertainment, and throughout North America by Unbranded Events.

For 46 years, Billy Idol has been of the most recognisable faces and voices of rock n’ roll, with over 40 million album sales, and numerous platinum albums worldwide. Between 1977 and 1981, Idol released three albums with Generation X as their camera-ready frontman. In 1982, he embarked on a transatlantic/trans-genre solo career that integrated the bold and simple lines of punk and rock’n’roll decadence. Last year, Idol released his latest project, The Cage EP, via Dark Horse Records. The new music follows Idol’s 2021 The Roadside EP, which received praise from fans and critics alike. In January, Idol cemented his name among Hollywood legends with the first Hollywood Walk of Fame Star of 2023. Idol recently wrapped the first-ever Generation Sex tour in the U.K. and E.U. The punk supergroup is comprised of Idol and Tony James from Generation X, and Steve Jones and Paul Cook from Sex Pistols. November 10 marks the 40th Anniversary of Idol’s seminal record Rebel Yell, with an expanded edition of the album due in early 2024.
