Rusty Egan, The Man Who Invented The 80's, Live Weds At L.A.'s Sky Bar
Swissx Oil & Confectionery Inc. has announced it is sponsoring New Wave legend Rusty Egan's DJ set at the Mondrian Hotel's Sky Bar in Los Angeles on Wednesday, January 23rd. It's his first stop on a U.S. tour and a celebration of his recent album Welcome to the Dancefloor with features from 80's icons Peter Hook of New Order, Midge Ure of Ultravox and Tony Hadley of Spandau Ballet. Swissx, the leading luxury CBD oil line, will provide products to sample.
Rusty Egan got his start as the drummer for The Rich Kids, with Glen Matlock of the Sex Pistols and Midge Ure who would go on to front Ultravox. He went on to form Visage and to work at the Blitz club in London where new wave and electronic dance music, and the styles that they inspired, exploded into pop culture. Egan has also played with The Misfits, Skids, and Shock. At the Blitz he famously arranged for David Bowie to visit to cast the video for Ashes to Ashes from the wildly dressed crowd, but turned away Mick Jagger at the door.
He has most recently created remixes of songs by U2 and toured with them and with Depeche Mode. He's also held major residencies in Ibiza.
"I first visited L.A. when I played at the Whiskey with Ultravox in 1979," says Rusty Egan. "I've never stopped seeking and inventing new sounds and this city reverberates with so much musical history-It's the perfect place to kick of my latest tour."
"Rusty is a pioneer, a maniac, and an incredible talent," said Alki David, the CEO of Swissx. "It's our pleasure at Swissx to partner with him and help new audiences learn about his musicianship and incredible story."
SWISSX, which is owned by Greek billionaire and media mogul Alki David, has received testimonials from all over the globe including from Keeping up With the Kardashians' Scott Disick, Cheech and Chong's Tommy Chong, Chief Keef, Snoop Dogg, Dave Navarro and former NFL star Tully Banta-Cain. CBD oil has been shown to aid with pain and anxiety associated with many conditions including M.S., P.T.S.D., cancer treatment side effects, and more. SWISSX's devotion to delivering the purest product on earth aids in the powerful healing effects.

It's first theater is open in Hollywood with exclusive Swissx parties and guests are thrilled with the combination of CBD oil chocolates and hologram entertainment.
