Legend and icon John Lydon will talk about how he sees life, along with his unique and extraordinary career, during a 45-date UK tour. 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, and tickets go on sale on Friday, June 2, at 10 am. VIP meet & greet packages will also be available.

An icon, a revolutionary and an immortal, as the frontman and lyricist of the Sex Pistols, Johnny Rotten changed the face of music and sparked a cultural revolution. He caused an earthquake which transformed music for good. 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 second spoken word tour, where fans will get to hear his stories up close and personal.

John said today of the forthcoming shows: “I could be sh*t. I could be sh*te. I’m left-handed.”
