Dundee music fans will have the opportunity to grill one of punk rock’s most notorious figures ahead of the star’s show in the city.
It has now been announced that the former Sex Pistol frontman will host a Q&A session at the Whitehall Theatre on Bellfield Street.
The Public Image Is Rotten – An Evening With John Lydon will take place the day before the concert on August 30.
Going by the moniker Johnny Rotten during his time with the Sex Pistols, he was a leading figure in the punk rock scene of the late 1970s.
The Pistols performed in Dundee more than 40 years ago in the Bowling Alley, but a scheduled gig at the Caird Hall on December 1 1976 had to make way for one of music’s most notorious incidents.
The Dundee gig was cancelled so the band could make a live appearance on the Today show. The Bill Grundy interview caused outrage as the band repeatedly swore live on air but it made the Pistols a household name.
Lydon formed PiL soon after leaving the Sex Pistols and the band has released 10 albums since 1978.
Tickets for PiL’s concert at Church sold out just over a week after going on sale – the first date of the tour to do so.
Organisers say the ticket release date for the Q&A will be announced soon.
