John Lydon has announced Public Image Ltd will celebrate their 40th anniversary with a tour.
The group will mark the occasion by touring the UK, Europe and Japan in 2018.
Lydon was the only consistent member in the band's ever-changing lineup.
Alongside the tour, the post-punk band announced they will release a box set and a documentary of "the same name."
The tour, box set and documentary honour the 40 years since Lydon departed the Sex Pistols and put out Public Image Ltd's 1978 debut First Issue.
Directed by Tabbert Fiiller, the Public Image Ltd documentary The Public Image Is Rotten premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York and at London's Raindance Festival in 2017.
The documentary will be released in select theatres.
The UK leg of Public Image Ltd's tour will begin in Bristol on May 30.
Pre-sale tickets will be available February 23 at 11am, and tickets are open to the public on February 26 at the same time.
