Never miss another 'Public Image Ltd' show
This event takes place at O2 Academy Birmingham, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Widely regarded as one of the most innovative and influential bands of all time, PiL's music and vision has earned them a string of UK Top 40 singles and albums including the no.5 hit 'This Is Not A Love Song'. With a shifting line-up and unique sound, John Lydon guided the band from their debut album 'First Issue' in 1978 through to 1992's 'That What Is Not'.
Then after a 17 year hiatus, Lydon reactivated PiL in 2009 by taking them back on the road and continues to record new material, with 2012's 'This Is Pil' and 2015's 'What The World Needs Now... both reaching the UK Top 40 album charts. 2018 sees them reach their 40th anniversary with a career–spanning box set and a documentary.

Formed in Coventry in 1979 The Selecter spearheaded the 2-tone movement along with The Specials and Madness. Fronted by Pauline Black, they first hit the airwaves with 'On My Radio', followed by countless other hit singles. Mixing punk, ska and reggae, their debut album 'Too Much Pressure' successfully reflected the social and political issues of the early Thatcher years in Britain and gave a voice to disaffected youth across the racial divide.
The band split at the height of their popularity in 1981 but are now reformed and touring again with original lead singers Pauline Black and Arthur 'Gaps' Hendrickson.
