Signed Limited Edition copies of his book I Could Be Wrong, I Could Be Right, written especially for the tour, will be available at venues. Only 5,000 numbered copies will be printed.

Spokeswoman Lorraine McGregor said: “An icon, a revolutionary and an immortal, as the frontman and lyricist of the Sex Pistols, Johnny Rotten changed the face of music and sparked a cultural revolution. He caused an earthquake which transformed music for good. During his remarkable years in Public Image Ltd he consistently pushed back the boundaries and still continues to challenge and thrive.

“As a writer, Lydon wrote two best-selling volumes of memoir: the excoriating Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs and the ridiculously entertaining and uncompromising Anger Is An Energy: My Life Uncensored. Now he is embarking on his first spoken word tour where fans will get to hear his stories up close and personal.”
