We hope that everyone understands the circumstances that led up to the cancelation, and we offer our heartfelt apologies. Please believe that we are as disappointed as you are.

Coventry, The Copper Rooms UPDATE

PiL unfortunately had to cancel their show at The Copper Rooms in Coventry last night (23rd Sep) due to illness and at the advice of doctors.

We apologise for how late in the day this decision was made and for any inconvenience it caused. We are very hopefully a new date will be arranged for October, however it will take a few days for us to iron out these details, please hold on to your tickets for now and we expect to be able to announce the new date early next week. If for any reason you cannot make the new date, you are of course entitled to a refund from your point of purchase.

John is making a good recovery and tomorrow's show in Bristol, and the rest of the tour, will go ahead as scheduled.

A video of John's recent sold-out book event at the 100 Club is now online via QA Live. Rather than being an interview John (with the help of host Miranda Sawyer) takes lucky dip questions from the packed audience. As John remarks there are more people there than when the Pistols played there...

Watch the 45 minute 100 Club question and answer session via this link.
You can also watch a trailer here...

You can also see some great photographs from the event via QA Live website.

 
Also look out for John interviewed on Aljazeera America TV tomorrow, Tuesday May 12th at 5.30pm (CDT) (repeated Wednesday 3.30am / 3.00pm).

Today, Saturday, February 7th, is National Libraries Day. John Lydon has recorded a special message which can be listened to via the National Libraries Day website...

“…Yes, Saturday 7 February is National Libraries Day. Be there. Be there. Libraries are the most important essential part of our culture and civilisation. They record every single thought us as a species have ever endured and experienced. You are a fool to turn your nose up at this. I love libraries. I love the work done by librarians. Everything about me recovering when I was 8 years old is due to those librarians and I will forever love them as an entire tour de force of civilisation. God bless ya. Johnny Rotten loves ya. Please do not take our libraries away”
- John Lydon
