BILLY IDOL will kick off the new year with a performance at the 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic®–the New Year’s Day outdoor game between the Chicago Blackhawks® and the Washington Capitals®–at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. which will be televised live at 1:00 p.m. ET on NBC (along with CBC and TVA). This performance will come as IDOL prepares for his 2015 tour in support of his critically acclaimed 2014 album KINGS & QUEENS OF THE UNDERGROUND which features the anthemic lead single “Can’t Break Me Down” and its evocative video.

IDOL’s pre-game performance from the main stage at home plate before puck drop will pay tribute to the United States Armed Forces during the pre-game and in-game festivities on January 1. Following his performance, IDOL will be joined near the stage by more than 150 members of all five branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, who will be attending the game as honored guests of the NHL, for a special salute.
