Public Image Ltd Australian Tour Dates For April
Written by Mike Hohnen on 11th December, 2012
Now a few years back on deck from a 17-year hibernation, post-punk dons Public Image Ltd have announced their first run of Aussie tour dates in 20 years, hitting the East Coast in support of their world-wide album tour.
It’s been actions all stations since the group reformed back in 2009. With their leader John Lydon (who you might remember/know as the Sex Pistols’ gnarly frontman Johnny Rotten) at the helm, the band kicked things off with a world tour (minus Australia) before putting their attention to their first album in almost two decades.
This Is PiL, released in 2012 is testament to just how legit these dudes are, demonstrating the same fury and energy as its older siblings First Issue (1978) and That What Is Not (1992). The album scored the band a spot in Mojo Magazine’s Top 50 Albums of the Year roundup, as well as other numbers accolades, proving just how much the world needs PiL.
