Public Image Ltd. Promise to Fart on Fans with North American Fall Tour

Public Image Ltd. Promise to Fart on Fans with North American Fall Tour
Punk legend John Lydon is about to release an album with his post-Sex Pistols band Public Image Ltd., and before What the World Needs Now… lands on September 4, the group have announced a North American fall tour.

This will be PiL's first trip to North America in three years. It will kick off with a festival gig at New Orleams' Voodoo Music + Arts Experience Festival on Halloween (October 31). The group will then spend November touring around the continent, playing numerous U.S. cities and making three Canadian stops along the way: Montreal on November 14, Toronto on November 15, and Vancouver on November 22.

Regarding the appearance at Voodoo Music + Arts Experience Festival, Lydon said this in a press release: "Bring a gas mask and I'm going to fart continuously. P.S.: I want to see Donald Trump misrepresented with the greatest possible glee." We can't wait to find out if Johnny Rotten's farts live up to his foul name.

Speaking of Lydon's bathroom behaviour, check out the video for PiL's toilet-fixing anthem "Double Trouble" at the bottom of this page.
