It's not the first time Glen has played in Hastings. During the summer of 1976 the Sex Pistols supported Budgie on Hastings Pier.
"To be honest I don't remember a lot about it," Glen said.
"It was so long ago. I do remember asking Budgie's singer, Burke Shelley, who had a high voice, why they called their band that and he said, "It's because I sound like a budgie".
"His bass stack was about eight Vox AC30s on top of each other, which was a bit weird.
"I remember Malcolm McLaren (Sex Pistols' manager) and Jamie Reid (who designed the sleeve for Never Mind The Bollocks) were around.
"I"d been to Hastings as a kid. My grandparents had retired and moved to Hartley, which is near Cranbrook. I'd get a bottle of Coke and crisps and watch my granddad have a few pints and a plate of whelks."
Glen Matlock helped change the course of rock 'n' roll at just 16 years of age when he wrote the music to all the Sex Pistols' classics, including Anarchy In The UK and God Save The Queen.
He co-wrote ten of the twelve songs that featured on their classic punk debut album Never Mind the Bollocks.
After leaving the Pistols he formed Rich Kids – whose line-up featured future Ultravox members Midge Ure and Rusty Egan, plus The Clash's Mick Jones – and released Ghosts Of Princes In Towers in 1978.
In 2018, Glen became one of the first UK musicians to perform in South Korea's demilitarised zone.
With Earl Slick and Slim Jim on board, his latest album, Good To Go, was released late last year and features the single, Keep On Pushing, which Steve Van Zandt picked for his Coolest Song In The World feature on his show Little Steven's Underground Garage.
Glen's band for the gigs features Chris Musto on drums, Jim Lowe on bass and former Sigue Sigue Sputnick guitarist Neal X.
"We're looking forward to playing Hastings," the singer said. "Can anyone recommend a decent chippy?"
