Billy Idol at The Paramount

Oldschool and aged Denver punks and head-bangers strapped with leather came out on an early weeknight to worship Idol at the Paramount Theatre. Billy Idol, one of the largest icons of ’80s rock, had the crowd screaming and on their feet long before he took the stage at 9 p.m. Three decades after his superstar days, Idol still has his pappeal, hair, leather and brash. And he somehow over the years, he managed to keep his vocal chords intact despite decades of rock and roll screaming. Right there on stage next to Idol’s iconic spikes, guitarist Steve Stevens soloed doing the windmill and playing a variety of flashy guitars behind his head and with his teeth. Obliged, “White Wedding” and “Mony Mony” were played in an encore that closed with all the a fireworks finale.
