The Sex Pistols will play their first ever show at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on September 2, 30 years after John Lydon was banned from the venue.

The show will follow the Pistol’s world tour dates and their highly anticipated headline performance at The Isle Of Wight Festival on June 14.

“Johnny Rotten is more than happy to come back to perform his sensational ‘Baghdad Was A Blast’,” said Rotten, also known as John Lydon.

“Please Fulham supporters don’t take offence, I remember you when you were socialists.”

The band will play all of their legendary songs including ‘Anarchy In The UK’ , ‘God Save The Queen’, ‘Pretty Vacant’ and ‘Holidays In The Sun’.

The Sex Pistols new live DVD There’ll Always Be An England, featuring last years critically acclaimed Brixton Shows, is also set for release on June 30.
