SEX PISTOLS frontman Johnny Rotten has announced a 54-date ‘spoken word’ tour of Britain next year.
The singer, born John Lydon in London to Irish parents, will take a break from singing and will instead talk about his art and his life’s story during informal evenings of conversation and audience questions.
Fans will get the unique opportunity to hear stories from his extraordinary career up-close and personal.
Signed limited edition copies of his forthcoming book ‘I Could Be Wrong, I Could Be Right’, written especially for the tour, will also be available at venues – although only 5,000 copies will be printed.
Lydon said of the forthcoming shows: “I could be sh*t. I could be sh*te. I’m left-handed.”
Lydon spent summer holidays in his mother's native Co. Cork, where he suffered name-calling for having an English accent - a prejudice he claims he still receives today, even though he travels under an Irish passport.
As a writer, Lydon has written two best-selling memoirs: the excoriating Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs and the uncompromising Anger Is An Energy: My Life Uncensored.
