PHOENIX — Rocker Billy Idol and metal veterans Megadeth are among the headline acts lined up for the RockYard Concert Series at Scottsdale’s Arizona Bike Week 2023.

The five-day motorcycle rally is set for March 29-April 2 at WestWorld of Scottsdale.

The four-night concert series kicks off March 29, a Wednesday, with Texas Hippie Coalition. Idol has the Thursday slot, followed by Megadeth on Friday and Staind on Saturday.

Tickets for each concert come with a five-day wristband for the other Arizona Bike Week activities. Prices vary by show.

There’s also an all-concert pass offered for $150.

Five-day wrist bands without access to the RockYard concerts cost $15.

Arizona Bike Week also features daily stunt shows, scenic charity rides, contests, on-site camping and more.

Other favorites include the T-Bar Trail Ride, Dry Heat Run, happy hour parties, after-hour parties, stunt shows, campground contests, bike shows and factory demo rides.

“Whether you are coming by motorcycle or car, there is something for everyone with exciting rides, events, concerts, contests and great things to see and do every day,” Lisa Cyr of Arizona Bike Week said in a press release.
