news Looks like someone let the cat out the bag, but yes, the Sex Pistols will probably be headlining some major festivals next year. Sweden and Isle of Wight have already been announced. Which is news to Mr Rotten.

More talks are underway, and as soon as you can hear it from the horses mouth, you will.

Until then as John would say, you can peace off…
