"In Super Overdrive Live" was filmed at the Congress Theater, Chicago for the US TV series Soundstage and originally broadcast in America in July 2009. The show sees Billy Idol, with trademark sneer and peroxide hair very much to the fore, reunited with guitarist Steve Stevens, who played on (& sometimes co-wrote) all his eighties hits. The tracklist runs from early Generation X favourites, through his classic solo singles and up to tracks from his most recent album "The Devil's Playground". Idol is a fantastic live performer who oozes onstage charisma and the audience rocks along to every minute of this mesmerising concert.
This was a great live show despite the 90+ degree heat inside the venue with no air conditioning. This is a good best of selection of live Billy Idol songs, filmed in HD. However, it is not the complete 2+ hour concert. Missing is a great rendition of In the Summertime, the Mony Mony encore and a few others.
It is a deal at $10.00, and might be the only place to get the songs Cry and Touch My Love in a professionally recorded environment.
The video and more
I have been an avid Billy Idol fan since the early 80s when I was in grade school. This video shows that BI can still rock it well with his devoted fans. I saw Billy and the band play in Spokane WA ( a last minute booking!) in 2001. He invited me up to the stage and I received a kiss from him! Thanks Billy for making one of my biggest dreams come true:) You and your music will always rock my world.
