The Anarchy Tour

The Anarchy Tour

The Anarchy Tour

Author Mick O'Shea has interviewed members of the bands, managers, roadies and audience members in order to tell the tale of this iconic tour.

In December 1976, a coach drove off down a London street.  On board were the Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Heartbreakers and their respective management while The Damned, who were also on the bill, were traveling separately.

The Anarchy in the UK Tour should have been just another rock 'n roll tour, and surely would have been had it not been for The Sex Pistols' anarchic antics on the Today show two days earlier.  What should have been a inconsequential three-minute interview to plug the tour descended into farce when the show's host Bill Grundy goaded the Sex Pistols' guitarist Steve Jones into saying something outrageous.
