Billy Idol has agreed to make one devoted US fan's dream come true by performing at his birthday party.

Michael Henrichsen has campaigned for two years to get his idol to play on his big day, and this week, on his 26th birthday, his wish will finally come true.

Michael set up a website, playmybirthdaybillyidol.com and managed to get endorsements from celebrities including Mike Love of the Beach Boys and America's Got Talent host Nick Cannon.

He has staged several concerts dubbed Billy Idol Aid and raised over 10,000 dollars for a food bank and the American Red Cross.

Now the British punk rocker has agreed to play at Michael's 26th birthday party in Seattle on Friday October 26, 2012.

Michael said the party is going to be "pretty much the coolest night ever."

Billy said in a message on the website: "People of the world have spoken - the dream will become a reality. I will take the stage for what is sure to be one of the most memorable birthday parties your city has ever known!"

Taurus:

A home improvement project will be stalled or called off altogether. The situation is frustrating, but it can't be helped. Instead of dwelling on your disappointment, turn your attention to more rewarding pursuits. Working on an unusual creative project fills you with excitement. Don't show the fruits of your labour to anyone just now. You'll go through several drafts before you're happy with the result. At that point, you can show off your handiwork. Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
