Modern Sky + Guitar China + Xound Force pres. PiL

Modern Sky + Guitar China + Xound Force host in the John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten)-fronted Public Image Ltd. for their China debut, behind their first album in more than 20 years, This is PiL. After the break-up of the Sex Pistols, Lydon formed PiL in the late 70s, and today they're revered as the source of some of the most challenging and innovative noise and experimental music of the period. Hailed by NME as "arguably the first post punk band", even! An accolaide indeed.

Don't miss PiL's highly anticipated China debut -- expect a mix of the hits ("Public Image", "Rise", This is Not a Love Song" and more) intermixed with some of the new stuff (which is, honestly, pretty rocking), and hopefully some piquant stage jibber jabber from the world's most famous butter salesman, John Lydon.

Beijing post punkers Re-TROS to open. Damn, this is a fine show. Starts 9pm. Advance tickets are 280rmb. Door charge, 360rmb.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Can I choose a specific seat?

    Unfortunately, no. Ticketing systems in China vary from venue to venue, and many are not advanced enough to offer specific seat selection. The event promoters and venues that we work with currently have no systems in place that allow third party ticketing agents to access their respective floors plans. However, whenever you buy a ticket from us, you will automatically receive the best available seats within the category you've selected.

  • How do I pay for my tickets?

    Upon delivery of your tickets, you may pay our delivery staff directly (either in cash, or with a local Union Pay card with pin code). Online payment (Alipay and Wechat payment) are avaiable as well. We only accept payments made in Chinese yuan. If you need a company fapiao for your purchase, then please email us.

  • What happens if the show gets cancelled? Will I get my money back?

    Yes, SmartTickets always refunds ticket purchases if a show gets cancelled. This guarantee is one of the reasons that people choose to purchase through SmartTickets instead of less reliable sources. Please note, though, that we only refund the face value of the tickets, and not the 20rmb handling fee.

  • I lived outside Shanghai, how can I get the tickets?

    We can deliver the tickets to you through Shunfeng Express if you happen to be located outside of Shanghai. For this option, purchase the tickets online (Alipay or Wechat), give us your address in Chinese, and we will contact you to sort out the specifics. We can only accept cash for deliveries within the Shanghai area.

  • Oops! I missed online payment QR code at the first time!
