Sex Pistols to reunite
- 21 September 2007
The Sex Pistols have confirmed plans to reunite for a one-off gig to mark the 30th anniversary of Never Mind The Bollocks.
The legendary punk band will play at London’s Brixton Academy on November 8, bringing together original members John Lydon, Steve Jones, Paul Cook and Glen Matlock.
Lydon said: “Maybe it’s because we’re all Londoners, but there would be no Sex Pistols without dear old London town.”
He added: “See you all at Brixton with proper feelings and proper people all round. From London Bridge to the Rose and Crown, all of Britain is welcome so come on down.”
The controversial album Never Mind The Bollocks… Here’s The Sex Pistols was released in October 1977. Songs such as Anarchy In The UK and God Save The Queen caused an uproar, with the latter banned from the BBC.
It reached number two in the charts at the time of the Queen’s silver jubilee.
The album is also being re-released to mark the anniversary.
Tickets for the gig on November 8 cost £37.50 and go on sale today (21/9).
