Reno, Nev. – Rock icon Billy Idol will bring his 2015 North American tour to Grand Sierra Resort and Casino (GSR) in Reno, Nev.

Billy Idol’s bad-boy rebel persona complete with his tumultuous lifestyle and raw, attention-grabbing lyrics bolstered him into the spotlight as one of MTV’s first megastars. Since then, he has been one of the most recognizable faces in pop music selling 40 million albums with numerous titles scoring platinum status. Songs like “Dancing With Myself,” “White Wedding,” “Rebel Yell,” “Mony Mony,” “Eyes Without A Face,” “Flesh For Fantasy,” and “Cradle Of Love” earned Idol nine Top 40 singles in the U.S. and U.K. as he toured around the world playing to sold-out arenas. Idol’s most recent world tour has already played to sold-out audiences on three continents. The tour celebrates the Idol’s 2014 album “Kings and Queens of the Underground,” which is Idol’s first album of new material in over a decade. The album’s palette will be instantly familiar to lovers of classic Billy Idol, while announcing a firm step into the future.

The Grand Theatre, which is undergoing a $10 million renovation, will be one of the top entertainment venues in the West with a capacity of 2,700 including well-appointed luxury seats with more legroom, wider seats and wider aisles. In addition, exclusive VIP booths with personalized beverage and bottle service will be available for small groups and special occasions. Designed by John Sergio Fisher & Associates, the theatre will also include a two-tiered entry with an all-new, enclosed lobby, state-of-the-art lighting and sound renovations, as well as new artist facilities including dressing rooms, green rooms and an artist lounge.
