John Lydon was glassed during a gig in Santiago, but laughed off the attack with the above photo.
Reports suggest the ex-Sex Pistols vocalist protected his attacker from upset fans. The (above) image was posted on PiL’s Facebook with the message: “Glass attack last night at Santiago. No reflection on the rest of the crowd. Great gig. It lives. Anyone got any more pictures?”
Details haven’t been revealed, but according to Classic Rock eyewitnesses are suggesting that a bottle was thrown by someone in the front of the crowd. Fans jumped to punish the bottle thrower. John told them to ‘leave him’ and carried on with the show.
Their South American tour finishes tonight (August 16th) in Mexico City, showcasing the band’s latest album What The World Needs Now.
