PUNK Legend and icon John Lydon will talk about how he sees life, along with his unique and extraordinary career, during a 44-date UK tour that includes a date at New Brighton Floral Pavilion.

The shows in Spring 2024, under the banner ‘I Could Be Wrong, I Could Be Right’, will visit all parts of England, Scotland and Wales.

Lydon will reflect on the Sex Pistols, Public Image Limited (PiL), his art and his life’s story during informal evenings of conversation and audience questions. The tour will start in May 2024 and finish in June 2024. VIP meet and greet packages will also be available.

As the frontman and lyricist of the Sex Pistols, Lydon, then known as 'Johnny Rotten'  changed the face of music and sparked a cultural revolution.  Although their initial career lasted just two and a half years, they became one of the most culturally influential acts in popular music with their debut album, 1977's Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols, regarded as one of the most seminal LPs of all time. 

After leaving the Pistols, Rotten reverted to his birth name of Lydon and formed the influential post-punk band Public Image Ltd (PiL) with former Clash member Keith Levene and school friend Jah Wobble. 

PiL's second studio album Metal Box (1979) pushed their sound further into the avant-garde, and is often regarded as one of the most important albums of the post-punk era.

During his remarkable years in Public Image Ltd he consistently pushed back the boundaries and still continues to challenge and thrive.

As a writer, Lydon has written two best-selling volumes of memoir: the excoriating ‘Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs’ and the ridiculously entertaining and uncompromising ‘Anger Is An Energy: My Life Uncensored’.

Now he is embarking on his first spoken word tour, where fans will get to hear his stories up-close and personal.

John Lydon: 'I Could Be Wrong I Could Be Right' is at New Brighton Floral Pavilion on Friday, June 21. Tickets available from floralpavilion.com
