Singer Billy Idol is set to perform an outdoor show Sept. 18 at The Big E Arena in West Springfield, Mass.

Billy was an early architect of punk rock, and is one of the most recognizable faces in music with his lip-curling sneer and fist-pumping persona. He has sold more than 40 million albums and scored numerous Top 40 singles including, “Dancing With Myself, “White Wedding,” “Rebel Yell,” “Eyes Without A Face” and many more.

Billy’s headlining show at the Big E Fairgrounds begins at 7:30 p.m. Other artists that are scheduled to perform at The Big E this year include Machine Gun Kelly, Zach Williams, Flo Rida, Benatar & Giraldo, Goo Goo Dolls, Jesse McCartney, Jay & The Americans, Fought, 10,000 Maniacs, Don McClean, The Outlaws, Lisa Lisa and many others.
