Sex Pistols To Reunite.


The four original members - John Lydon, guitarist Steve Jones, drummer Paul Cook and bassist Glen Matlock - will come together for a one-off concert to mark the 30th anniversary of their only studio album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols.

The show is scheduled to take place Nov. 8 at London's Brixton Academy. Tickets go on sale Friday.

The concert date will be preceded by the re-issue of Never Mind the Bollocks, recognized as one of the most influential albums in rock history.

Four singles, "Anarchy In The UK," "God Save The Queen," "Pretty Vacant," and "Holidays In The Sun," are also scheduled to be reissued on vinyl.

Already music magazine NME have shown their support by gearing up their readers to get "God Save the Queen" to number one on the charts, a position it failed to reach when originally released in 1977. Banned by Radio One, it is one of music's most legendarily apocryphal tales that the chart was rigged by jittery regulators who felt the Queen might not be amused at having her Jubilee celebrations sound-tracked by a fevered anthem to monarchy bashing.
