UK icon Billy Idol has confirmed he will return to Australia in 2020 for a string of headline shows alongside some very special guests.

The punk legend will hit the country next January in what will be his first trip Down Under since 2015 for sets in Brisbane and Sydney, as well as Melbourne where he is confirmed as the first artist for the Australian Open's AO Live Stage. 

Idol will be joined at all of the concerts by his full band and long time collaborator, Steve Stevens, as well as Melbourne's The Delta Riggs and Sydney outfit The Kids (in Brisbane and Sydney).

Tickets for the east coast dates go on sale from 10am on Friday 16 August.
