The Sex Pistols are to play a one-off gig to mark the 30th anniversary of their album 'Never Mind The B*****ks'.

The punk band will play London’s Brixton Academy on November 8.

Announcing their comeback on the NME.com website, frontman John Lydon said: "Maybe it’s because we’re all Londoners, but there would be no Sex Pistols without dear old London town."

The group split in 1978 but reformed in 1996 and last performed together in 2003.

All four surviving members – Lydon, Steve Jones, Paul Cook and Glen Matlock - will perform at the November gig.

Tickets cost £37.50 (€54) and go on sale at 9am on Friday.

Lydon said: “From London Bridge to the Rose and Crown, all of Britain is welcome so come on down.”

'Never Mind The B*****ks Here’s The Sex Pistols' was released in 1977 amid great controversy and is now regarded as a landmark in British music history.

It featured the singles 'God Save The Queen', 'Anarchy in the UK' and 'Pretty Vacant'.

The album is being re-released to coincide with the anniversary.
