Punk legends the Sex Pistols will celebrate the 30th anniversary of seminal album “Never Mind the Bollocks” by reuniting for a one-off gig at London’s Brixton Academy on Nov. 8.
“Maybe it’s because we’re all Londoners, but there would be no Sex Pistol without dear old London town,” said the band’s frontman Lydon.
The band was one of the most controversial to emerge from the 1970s punk movement. Singles such as “Anarchy in the UK” were banned by broadcasters, which made the Pistols more popular among their teenage following.
Bass player Matlock left the band in 1977 and was replaced by Sid Vicious, who died in 1979 from a drugs overdose.
The band split in 1978, but reformed a decade ago to perform at concerts and festivals in the U.K. They split again in 2003.
