Lydon is to be joined by former members Lu Edmonds - a one-time member of The Damned - and Bruce Smith as well as multi-instrumentalist Scott Firth- hmmmmn

Lu was also in Stranglers support band The Edge at Battersea I remember! In The Damned he didn't gig as far as I recall (I maybe wrong?) but then again neither did Keith Levine when he was in the Damned! Lu went on to join an incarnation of Spizzoil, another Stranglers support act.

Can't argue with you on the price, certainly is very expensive. However you make your choice and pays your money -- or not. I for one have been to gigs and payed a lot less than £36 and come away feeling totally robbed due to a totally inept or half hearted performance.

At the end of the day if I come away from a gig saying I've had a thoroughly enjoyable experience, how have I been ripped off whatever the monetary cost of the ticket?
