The singer will stage Billy Idol: Forever at the House of Blues venue at the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino on 12 dates throughout March and May (16).

The shows will serve as a career retrospective and feature his hits over the years, including Dancing With Myself and White Wedding, as well as tracks from his days as the frontman of British punk act Generation X. He will be joined onstage by his longtime guitarist Steve Stevens.

Idol is the latest big name to land a residency in Sin City - Celine Dion, Mariah Carey and Britney Spears are currently regulars in the gambling mecca, while Jennifer Lopez and Lionel Richie will be joining the line-up with their own string of gigs next year (16).
