The Tabernacle Was a Cradle of Love as Billy Idol Played to a Full House on May 26.

Billy Idol played to a sold-out crowd at The Tabernacle in Atlanta on Tuesday, May 26.  The Georgia crowd was wowed as Idol played songs from the recently released Kings & Queens of the Underground as well as many of his greatest hits. 

Billy Idol's voice rocked exactly as it did in the 80s.  But then again, he is from the sans Auto-tune era. Needless to say, rock and roll's Bad Boy gave a performance that will be remembered  ... it was stellar.
Below are highlights from the evening.  While some photographs are in color, Billy Idol shines brightest in the edgy, film noir of black & white.  Enjoy!

The rebel yells ...

Hello Billy!

I think he saw me, no?

He's hot in the city ...

A very happy crowd!

Staying hydrated is most important.

Belting it out.


Yes, the "bad boy" lives ...

He wants you!

A heartfelt moment.

He smiles lots at the audience.

Paul Trudeau pushes up his sleeves and Billy begins to sing.

"You make be feel ..."

Look ... he's dancing with himself.
