John Lydon brought the Public Image Ltd 40th Anniversary “The Image is Rotten” celebration to NYC on Monday (10/15) for a show at Brooklyn Steel. Opening with “Deeper Water” off 2012’s This is PiL, the current lineup of the band — which includes guitarist Lu Edmonds (who also played bouzouki), drummer Bruce Smith, and bassist Scott Firth — pulled from throughout PiL’s career, including “Death Disco,” “The Body,” “Warrior,” “This is Not a Love Song,” “Rise,” “Public Image,” and even “Open Up,” which was John Lydon’s collaboration with Leftfield. Check out photos from the show in the gallery above and setlist and video from the Brooklyn Steel show are below.
