John Lydon looks forward to Isle of Wight Festival

John Lydon, the former singer with The Sex Pistols, has spoken about his upcoming performance at the 2011 Isle of Wight Festival.

The punk star stated that it will be a "bonus" to be on stage in the Big Top arena at the same time that ex-Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher is performing on the Main Stage with his new band Beady Eye.

Speaking to Beehive City, he said: "There's a nod to my vocal style there, isn't there? Send my love to Noel."

Lydon added that some of the money earned by playing shows next year with PiL will go towards medical bills, with his brother currently battling against cancer and his step-daughter dying recently.

"It's put us in a financial quagmire and I need to fill the coffers," he admitted.

Tickets for the 2011 Isle of Wight Festival - which will be headlined by Kasabian, Foo Fighters and Kings of Leon - are already on sale through island ferry operator Red Funnel.
