My jaw is still on the floor trying to recover from what just transpired last Friday. 905 FANS ATTENDED BILLY IDOL AID 3. This event nearly sold out the showbox!!! Unreal! On top of that just over $2,600 will go to American Red Cross and Northwest Harvest EACH! Over $5,200 was raised for charity, all from ticket sales.
Keep an eye out this week for more pictures from the event, Video ad more updates from this whirlwind of a weekend!
Snoop Dogg, U2, The Police, Lady GaGa and now BILLY IDOL AID 3 will join the list of acts to play the historical SHOWBOX at the MARKET Venue in Seattle, WA on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18TH!!!
This event is Co-Headlined by my 80's New wave band NITE WAVE and 80's Pop Band REWIND! More dance music spun by PlayMyBirthdayBillyIdol.com approved DJ Indica Jones! We also have costume contests, 80's photobooth and 80's makeovers!
This is the culmination of over a year's worth of work! I know what your thinking. Your trying to get Billy Idol to play at your birthday, but your running an Idol Aid Event after your birthday.
Well there was a reason it has been quiet around here lately. It took lots and lots of work but I was offered too sweet of a deal. The original idea was to hold Idol Aid 3 on my birthday on 10-22 and conclude this project. While looking for venues to hold Idol Aid 3, I wanted to do something different. This is suppose to be the culmination of the PlayMyBirthdayBillyIdol.com project so I got in touch with AEG Live which owns the showbox. They had heard of the project and actually wanted the Idol Aid 3 event at their venue! They offered this great date in November and I just couldn't say no. So we get an extra month to wait and see if we hear from Idol!
This is the same venue I have seen tons of my favorite concerts. Billy Idol has played here, Queens of the Stone Age, one of my favorite bands, just played here last month. Weezer, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Lady GaGa you name it they have played here. Now I'm getting an opportunity to not only Promote and Market a dream event for me, but having my own 80's band PLAY ON STAGE! An absolute dream come true....
So time to stay tuned...Will Billy Idol have anything to say to the climax of the PlayMyBirthdayBillyIdol.com project @ Billy Idol Aid 3?
