The support groups include two from the Seventies punk era, the Cockney Rejects and Anti-Nowhere League plus Chubby and the Gang, a London rock band formed in 2019.

The Sex Pistols became nationally famous, or notorious, when they swore on live TV on December 1, 1976.

Singer Johnny Rotten at first let slip a rude word on the London current affairs show Today.

But guitarist Steve Jones launched into a foul mouthed tirade, goaded by presenter Bill Grundy.

From then the nation became aware of punk rock and the Sex Pistols were its pioneers.

This spring, in Dover, Deal and Folkestone director Danny Boyle filmed a TV drama called Pistol, based on Jones’ memoirs.

Tickets for Friday’s concert are up to £13.20 and can by bought via the website thebookinghall.com
