The Sex Pistols are ready to bring their anarchy back to the U.S.A., but don’t expect to hear any new material this summer . . . or ever. According to John Lydon, a.k.a. Johnny Rotten, the band will never write or record another original song. “The reason I do the Pistols is that’s where I started and that makes things clear how I have not changed,” said the forty-seven-year-old singer. “In any kind of different music I go into, the spirit is the same . . . but you will not get me doing new Pistols.”
The Sex Pistols’ original lineup — Lydon (vocals), Steve Jones (guitar), Paul Cook (drums) and Glen Matlock (bass); Sid Vicious replaced Matlock in 1977 — have confirmed two North American shows, August 21st at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York, and August 25th at Toronto’s Molson Amphitheater. More dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
The 2003 edition of the Sprite Liquid Mix tour will offer fans in 20 cities an affordable chance to see a late summer festival lineup including N*E*R*D and the Roots. Tickets to the tour, scheduled to kick off Aug. 14 in Denver and run through Sept. 14 in Boston, will cost only $10. O.A.R., Talib Kweli, Robert Randolph & the Family Band are also on the bill.
The event will boast two stages, the second of which will feature national and local bands to be announced. Other elements include the PlayStation2 Urban Playground, where BMX bikers will put on a show, an NBA Rhythm N Rims basketball court on which concertgoers can compete, and the Blockbuster video gaming lounge, where ticket holders can try out PlayStation game systems and new software. The Pinnacle “Work It” Performance Zone will feature audience members engaging in strength and endurance contests, while Scion Sessions will feature graffiti artists and local DJ talent.
Last year’s Sprite Liquid Mix tour featured Jay-Z, 311, N*E*R*D, Nappy Roots, and Hoobastank, with $20 ticket prices.
