LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Fresh from a brief reunion tour of Britain, the Sex Pistols will return to the road next summer, guitarist Steve Jones said on Wednesday.

Speaking on his Los Angeles radio show, Jones did not give any specifics, other than to say that the punk rock icons might play a charity show at London's Royal Albert Hall organized by Who vocalist Roger Daltrey.

After a break of several years, the Sex Pistols last month played five shows at London's Brixton Academy, and an arena show each in Manchester and Glasgow. Jones said two of the London concerts were recorded by producer Chris Thomas and shot by documentary filmmaker Julien Temple for a DVD.

Thomas and Bill Price produced the group's sole studio album, 1977's "Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols," while Temple documented the band's rise and fall in "The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle" and "The Filth and the Fury."
