John Lydon reforming Public Image Ltd — UK tour dates
"We'll see where we can go," 53-year-old Lydon told the Guardian. "Some things may be quite similar, some may not."
December 2009 sees the return of Public Image Limited for 5 very special live dates in the UK. Their first shows in 17 years.
The shows will mark the 30th Anniversary of the release of 'Metal Box' but PiL will NOT be limited to tracks from one album and the tour will showcase their whole career.
PiL founder John Lydon will be joined by former members Lu Edmonds (Guitar & Misc) and Bruce Smith (Drums), plus new recruit Scott Firth (Bass).
As a Reuters article says, "the new-look PiL will not contain original band members Jah Wobble or former Clash guitarist Keith Levene". Those UK-only tour dates and some videos are below...
