Sex Pistols add two reunion shows

Punk legends The Sex Pistols have added two additional shows to their
London reunion in November.

They will now play the Brixton Academy on 9 and 10 November in addition
to their 8 November concert.

The gigs were added after tickets for the one-off event, which cost
£37.50, were snapped up within 10 minutes.

The event was announced to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band's
seminal Never Mind The Bollocks album. All three
gigs have now sold out.

Defining records

Original members John Lydon, Steve Jones, Paul Cook and Glen Matlock
will perform at the concerts.

The group, who split in 1978, first reformed for a world tour in 1996
and last performed together in 2003.

Never Mind The Bollocks... Here's The Sex Pistols, which included God
Save the Queen and Anarchy in the UK, caused
uproar when it was released in October 1977.

But it was one of the defining records of the punk movement and is now
recognised as one of the most influential albums in
rock history.
