It’s a beautiful Saturday afternoon and a perfect time to dance, with yourself. “I’d ask the world to dance, and I’d be dancing with myself!” sings Billy Idol at the Taste of Chicago. Everyone is on their feet jumping around in joy. Billy still has his punk flair, which was captured excellently in his performance in The Wedding Singer. He continues to prove it with “Rebel Yell”. “In the midnight hour she cried more, more, more! With a rebel yell she cried more, more, more!”
When Idol returns for the encore, he says “Thank you everyone for an awesome life!” Fans of all ages cheer. He then launches into “White Wedding”. “It’s a nice day to start again. It’s a nice day for a white wedding!” This song is so iconic. It’s incredible to see it performed live by the man himself. The Taste of Chicago has once again featured a world class performance, and they did without charging admission!
