Since returning at the end of 2009 for their first shows in 17 years John Lydon (vocals), Lu Edmonds (guitar), Bruce Smith (drums) and Scott Firth (bass) have earned critical and public acclaim for their live performances, with many British media outlets championing them as the shows of the year.

With a wide and varied career spanning three decades post-punk originators Public Image Ltd will play Coventry, Middlesbrough, Cardiff, Sheffield and Preston as well as UK festival slots at Isle Of Wight Festival and GuilFest, showcasing the unique sounds of tracks such as “Public Image”, “This Is Not A Love Song”, “Rise” and “Warrior” with more surprises in store.

John Lydon: “My body and mind is the Sex Pistols but my heart and soul is PiL.”  

After fronting the Sex Pistols John Lydon formed Public Image Ltd in 1978 with their experimental sound fusing Rock, Dance, Folk, Ballet, Pop and Dub PiL are regarded as producing some of the most diverse music of the post-punk era. As a band the music and vision constantly evolved like no other, culminating in an incredible live experience.

Lu Edmonds- Multi instrumentalist and former guitarist in The Damned Lu joined PiL in 1986 recording and playing on the album Happy? and co-writing the album ‘9’ adding yet another dimension to the PiL sound.

Bruce Smith- Former drummer in The Pop Group and The Slits became percussionist for PiL also in 1986 playing and recording on the albums Happy? and ‘9’. Seen as a drumming virtuoso, Bruce Smith brought his unique style into the fold.

Scott Firth- A bass player/multi instrumentalist that has collaborated and played with a variety of top musicians and bands including Steve Winwood, John Martyn, Elvis Costello, and The Spice Girls. Scott’s arrival into the band in 2009 resulted in John Lydon declaring him “Genius at work!”
