Idol's Twitter Update on 5-16-11

Not to look in too deep into Billy Idol's Twitter update from yesterday but have a peak below!

idoltwitter.JPG

"Official announcement of the October tour dates very soon. Plus a special message from Billy.

That's the quote that grabbed my eye...now note 3 dates have "Unofficially been announced for Idol in October according to Pollstar.com 10-8 in Saratoga, CA...10-13 Fresno, CA...10-16 San Diego, CA. So this could just be assuring the public these dates are happening and making them official. However maybe there are more dates to be announced?...Stay Tuned!
