Public Image Ltd. live in Los Angeles, 4/13/10

The reformatted Public Image Ltd. today announced that it will return to the U.K. this summer with a six-date run of concerts in late July that follows John Lydon and Co.’s initial comeback tour of the long-dormant band’s homeland last December and a just-completed North American trek.

The new PiL dates begin July 19 in London and continue through July 26 in Glasgow; before and after those concerts, the band is slated to play European festivals and undertake a previously announced six-date German tour (see full tour dates below).

While Lydon has not said how long he expects the current PiL reunion to last — he reactivated the band last December after a 17-year break — he has expressed hope he can fund a new album with proceeds from this year’s tour.
