The three surviving members of The Clash's classic line-up are to come together for an exclusive BBC Radio 6 Music show next month (September).

Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon will be interviewed by Cerys Matthews in front of an intimate audience of fans at the BBC's Maida Vale Studios in west London. During the course of the show, the trio will also take questions from the audience.

The show will be pre-recorded on September 6 before being broadcast on BBC Radio 6 Music shortly after on a date to be confirmed. Fans have until midday next Sunday (August 25) to apply for tickets and more information is available at the station's website.

Matthews announced the exclusive interview on her BBC Radio 6 Music show this morning (August 18). "I am thrilled to be talking with Mick, Paul and Topper at length on 6 Music and will be asking them about their early years, their inspirations and where life has taken them since," she said in an accompanying press statement.

"Their music gave a generation a voice not just in music but in the choice of how they lived their everyday lives and it still sounds as great, as fresh and loaded with good intent as music can ever be."
