Public Image Ltd. 2012 tour includes Ybor City date



thisispil_7.pngPublic Image Ltd. and John Lydon are ready to hit the road again, announcing their first North American tour in two years. And bonus: There are even a couple Florida dates on there. The tour supports the band's new album This is PiL, which was released in May. (Watch Lydon talk about the new tour in the video blog below.)

Best of all: There's a date here in Tampa, Oct. 6, at the Cuban Club in Ybor City. Perfect venue for a band like this. These days, the band consists of Lydon (the only founding member remaining) along with Bruce Smith, Lu Edmonds and Scott Firth. Fave '80s tune? It's still Rise, from 1986's Album.
