Billy Idol is back! On tour for most of the summer of 2001, Idol wound up the year with a three-night stand at The Roxy in Los Angeles and New Year's Eve shows in Las Vegas. Touring with a seasoned band that includes original guitarist Steve Stevens, Idol has been playing clubs, theaters, casinos and “one-offs,” including a VH-1 special and Neil Young's annual Bridge School benefit (where Idol reportedly stole the show). Traveling light, with FOH and monitor gear supplied by Sound Image (Escondido, Calif.), the tour has been using a variety of P.A. systems, including JBL VerTec, Electro-Voice X-Array and L-Acoustic V-DOSC line arrays. Mix caught the second of two late-December shows at the House of Blues in Anaheim, Calif.
