Watch Billy Idol and Bryan Adams Duet on ‘C’mon Everybody’
Billy Idol and Bryan Adams appeared onstage together Saturday night to duet on the Eddie Cochran classic “C’mon Everybody” at the PNC Bank Arts Center, Holmdel, N.J.
It was their latest shared moment on the double-header Shine a Light tour, which started on Aug. 1 and ends tonight. The run is named after Adams’ latest album.
You can watch the duet performance below.
Idol and Adams performed the same song together a handful of times during the road trip. It’s also served as a vehicle for them in the past, with one performance taking place in Germany in 2014.
Earlier this year, Adams revealed that he was a victim of the Universal Music fire in which an unknown amount of artists' archive material was lost in 2008. He explained that he had been kept in the dark about the incident, even when he was trying to locate potential contents for a box set.
"I contacted the archive dept of Universal Music," he explained. "I called everyone -- former A&M employees, directors, producers, photographers, production houses, editors, even assistants of producers at the time. I can tell you with 100 percent certainty that I couldn’t find anything at Universal that had been published to do with my association with A&M Records in the 1980s. ... If you were doing an archaeological dig there, you would have concluded that it was almost as if none of it had ever happened. ... There was no mention that there had been a fire in the archive."
Adams' North American tour continues without Idol until Sept. 21.
