With music videos for singles “Dancing with Myself” and “White Wedding” Idol soon became a staple of then newly-established MTV.

(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire BILLY IDOL for an event?)
(i.e., what is BILLY IDOL booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for BILLY IDOL, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at any time without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when the artist becomes less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at any time. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
