Midge Ure and Glen Matlock resurrect the Rich Kids for one-off gig
Glen Matlock and Midge Ure are to reform their old band Rich Kids for a one-off gig in January.

The duo will be joined by other original Rich Kids members Steve New and Rusty Egan for the January 7 gig at London's O2 Academy Islington.

Other acts scheduled to appear at the show include Mick Jones and Tony James' Carbon/Silicon, TV Smith, Gary Kemp, Patti Paladin and The Illuminations (featuring Clive Langer, Steve Allen and Ian Broudie).

Both Ure and Matlock will play solo sets during the evening, before Rich Kids' main set. New's band Beastellabeast will also perform. Ure says that he expects the special guests to "join in the racket and play guitars very loudly".

Matlock formed Rich Kids in 1977, shortly after he left the Sex Pistols

Tickets for the gig go on sale this Friday (December 4) at 9am.
