As first tipped here last week, the Sex Pistols will headline Los Angeles radio station KROQ's second Inland Invasion show, set for Sept. 14 at the Glen Helen Blockbuster Pavilion in Devore, Calif. Blink-182, the Offspring, and Social Distortion will also be on hand for the show, for which tickets go on sale Saturday (Aug. 10) via Ticketmaster.

Other punk notables set for the event include the Buzzcocks, Circle Jerks, Bad Religion, X, the Damned, T.S.O.L., the Distillers, the Vandals, the Adolescents, Pennywise, G.B.H., Unwritten Law, and New Found Glory. KROQ also promises "a festival area with tons of the cool booths and activities that support the lifestyle of the bands on the bill."

The Sex Pistols have not performed in North America since wrapping their 1996 reunion tour. The group reunited for a show last month in London and earlier this summer re-released their classic 1977 single "God Save the Queen."

The 65,000-capacity Blockbuster Pavilion, located roughly 100 miles east of Los Angeles, played host to the inaugural Inland Invasion last August. It featured performances from Incubus, Weezer, the Offspring, Social Distortion, and Pennywise, among others.
