Dancing With Billy Idol! (Or at least seeing him in concert at Wolf Trap on June 20th)

I'm going to see Billy Idol!

He is performing at Wolf Trap's Filene Center on June 20th, and I am going with my friend Andrea. (I'm not sure anybody else in the group was interested.) We are seated in the right rear orchestra section. The tickets were $48 each but with various taxes and surcharges including $5 just to have the tickets e-mailed, the combined cost $113.50, but it's worth it. I want to see him in concert (which is noteworthy since I NEVER go to concerts -- I've been to maybe 4 in my whole life).

Billy Idol is awesome, as I've talked about here and here.


Yes, yes, I know, he doesn't look like that anymore. He looks more like this:

But he's still really cool and I really like him and his music. Indeed, I had Dancing With Myself stuck in my head today. So let's follow the bouncing ball ...

"On the floors of Tokyo / Down in London town's a go-go / With the record selection / And the mirror's reflection / I'm a-dancing with myself...

"When there's no one else in sight / in the crowded lonely night / Well, I wait so long for my love vibration / I'm a dancing with myself ...

"So let's sink another drink / 'Cause it'll give me time to think / And if I had the chance, I'd ask the world to dance / And I'll be dancing with myself ..."

Again, yay!
