When not contemplating possible Pink Floyd cover albums, John Lydon remains very much engaged in the reunion of Public Image Ltd. As we discovered last month, the lineup of Lydon, former members Lu Edmonds on guitar and Bruce Smith on drums, and newly added Scott Firth on bass, will be taking to Indio in April for an appearance at the Coachella Music Festival. Using this stateside trip to their advantage, the band has since announced a whole slew of U.S. tour dates, their first scheduled performances in this country in 18 years.
Following a performance at Coachella on April 16th, Lydon and friends will immediately head to San Francisco for a gig at the Grand Ballroom the following evening. After that, it’s on to cities across the western and mid-western portions of the U.S. before the band ultimately wraps things up by hitting Canada, the U.S. east coast, and concluding with a set on May 18th in New York City.
Tickets for the tour go on sale March 5th and 6th via Ticketmaster.com.
