Billy Idol has plenty of weapons in his arsenal. He’ll play old Generation X tunes! He’ll take off his shirt! If those fist-pumping solo hits (“Rebel Yell,” “White Wedding”) don’t put a smile on your face, his trademark sneer will. Idol plays the Chelsea on Feb. 21 ($50-$75).
HIDE & SEGER
Bob Seger rarely performs, which makes this tour extra special. His set list is loaded with classics (“Night Moves,” “Mainstreet”) and songs from last year’s rootsy Ride Out. Seger and his Silver Bullet Band play Mandalay Bay Events Center on Feb. 21 ($75-$125).
ON SALE NOW
