The Pavilion halts the punk legend's show...

John Lydon's event at Glasgow's Pavilion Theatre was pulled following "aggression and intimidation" by his team, it has been claimed.

The Sex Pistols legend was due to play the historic venue this evening - October 25th - but the show was cancelled shortly before it was due to start.

The Glasgow event was part of his ongoing Q&A series, titled I Could Be Right, I Could Be Wrong but it seems that behind the scenes ruptures mean this won't go ahead.

In a note on social media the venue's general manager Iain Gordon claimed that a pattern of "aggression and intimidation" made to his staff over a period of two weeks for his decision.

He writes: "Unfortunately, due to the aggression and intimidation made to various members of my staff by John Lydon's tour manager, tonight’s show will not go ahead."

"The days of this kind of behaviour is long gone. We have a zero tolerance policy of abuse, both physical and verbal, and this behaviour has been ongoing for the past two weeks. We are sorry if this affects you but as a company we will not accept this kind of attitude to our staff from anyone, including members of the public and touring staff."

Details of a refund are said to be incoming. John Lydon's new book I Could Be Right, I Could Be Right is out now.
