Renowned butter fan John Lydon is preparing to terrorise the UK with an extended series of live dates. Lydon has annouced that Public Image - currently enjoying something of a purple patch with a line up including ex-members of The Damned and The Pop Group - will be putting together a mini UK tour in November. Ignoring London, the band will perform in Salisbury, Leicester, Lemaington Spar and Birmingham over the following dates:
Salisbury, City Hall, UK, Tuesday, November 15th 2016
Leamington Spa, The Assembly, UK, Wednesday, November 16th 2016
Birmingham, O2 Institute, UK, Friday, November 18th 2016
Leicester, O2 Academy, UK, Saturday, November 19th 2016
Tickets for the shows go onsale today, and are available from the Public Image website.
