Indisputable rock royalty, enigmatic anarchist John Lydon became the archetypal face of the punk movement, fronting the revolutionary musical uprisings that were The Sex Pistols and Public Image Limited. The legacy of John Lydon’s music is carved into the evolution and upsurgence of rock music, dismantling the foundations of musical niceties and holding a megaphone to the furious adolescent voices of the nation.

50 years on from the rise of The Sex Pistols, Lydon’s wit is as devastating as ever and his voice refuses to quiet with age. The outspoken, anarchic and insightful mind of Lydon has been spilled across the pages of his newest novel, I Could Be Wrong, I Could Be Right. The ramblings, anecdotes and hysterical observations of a man who has experienced, endured and altered the world are transcribed in detail, yet Lydon is ready to share more.

In support of the book’s release, John Lydon is launching into action, touring the country with a string of conversational gigs that encourage audience questions and unscripted, honest dialogue (which may nor may not include his recent legal spat with Sex Pistols bandmates).

Coming to a couple of venues in the region this month, this unique experience is guaranteed to be an eye opening and poignant event, as Lydon recounts the adventures of his phenomenal career.

John Lydon brings his Q&A tour to Whitley Bay Playhouse on Wednesday 13th, The Forum in Northallerton on Friday 15th, Gala Theatre in Durham on Sunday 17th and The PAA in Yarm on Tuesday 26th October
