Here’s Johnny…


John Lydon, that is.

Yes, indeed, it looks like the Artist Formerly Known as Johnny Rotten is headed to Clifton Park, of all places.

The band is touring in support of their new album, “This Is PiL.”

UPDATE (8am, Tuesday July 31): Priced at $22.50 in advance ($25 at the door), tix will go on sale at 10am on Saturday (August 4).

    Nothing says “punk rock” like 60 year olds with bad dye jobs.

    @humm, hey would you mind explaining what does say “punk rock” in 2012 to us fossils who lived through it but tend to forget nowadays? PiL aren’t punk rock and they never were. And to Nippertown: they’re a company, not a band.

    Oh, and as I recall, British punk rock was built on endless bad dye jobs.

    Uhh, the Clash? The Buzzcocks? Dye jobs, you say?
