P.I.L 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches

The Sex Pistols are famously one of the most important bands to ever come out of the British Isles, thanks to the power-punk movement of the late 70s. Unfortunately, the chances of seeing them live again have all but diminished, though fret not, the next best thing has just been announced - a rare UK tour.

After John Lydon left The Sex Pistols he went on to form a solid fanbase with new band Public Image Limited (PIL). Last year they announced their intention to reform and to record a brand new album, which, until now has been little more than speculation. However, reports today confirm that they will indeed be back on the road, with a comprehensive tour of the UK in July.

John Lydon (vocals), Lu Edmonds (guitar), Bruce Smith (drums) and Scott Firth (bass) will play...London O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire (July 19) Bristol O2 Academy (20) Oxford O2 Academy (21) Leeds O2 Academy (23) Liverpool O2 Academy (24) Glasgow O2 ABC (26)

Tickets go on sale this Friday at 9am from 0871 230 1094. Still no word on whether John Lydon will give the crowd a live rendition of those Country Life butter adverts though. We’ll keep you posted.
