JOHN LYDON announces one-off 54-date UK spoken word tour for autumn 2020

Legend and icon John Lydon will talk about how he sees life, along with his unique and extraordinary career, during a one-off 54-date UK tour. The shows in autumn 2020 will coincide with the publication of his new book, ‘I Could Be Wrong, I Could Be Right’ and 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 September 2020 and end in November 2020 and tickets go on sale on Friday, November 1. A limited number of pre-release tickets for fans are available from Monday, October 28. VIP meet & greet packages will also be available.

Signed limited edition copies of his forthcoming book ‘I Could Be Wrong, I Could Be Right’, written especially for this tour, will be available at venues – only 5,000 numbered copies will be printed.

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 first 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.”
