Seattle Man Gets Billy Idol To Play His Birthday

07:01 AM Tuesday 10/23/12 | |

A Seattle man named Michael Henrichsen has ideas about how he might celebrate his 26th birthday this week.

First, Billy Idol rolls up in a limo and tells him to hop in. There are women everywhere. And later, when the British rock icon takes the stage, 1,800 of his closest friends go wild.

It’s not as far-fetched as it sounds. After a two-year campaign, Henrichsen has persuaded Idol to play his birthday party in Seattle on Friday night.

It took a lot of work. Henrichsen got a website, playmybirthdaybillyidol.com; got endorsements from B-list celebrities; and put on concerts dubbed “Billy Idol Aid” that raised more than $10,000 for a food bank and the American Red Cross.

Henrichsen says the party is going to be “pretty much the coolest night ever.”
