Dirty Pretty Things announce last ever gig details
Dirty Pretty Things have announced details of their last ever gig.

As NME.COM previously reported, Carl Barat's band announced in October that they will split up once they finish their current tour.

A statement titled 'The Last Waltz' on the band's website says that their final gig together will take place at London's Astoria 2 on December 20.

Tickets for the gig go on sale on December 10.

Meanwhile, the band have appealed for the return of guitarist Anthony Rossomando's mobile phone, which was stolen while the band performed at Paris's Bataclan venue on November 25.

The band asked fans who know the whereabouts of the phone to get in touch.

A statement said: "At the Paris gig, a fan got a little light-fingered with Anthony's jacket. In the pocket of the jacket was his mobile phone, which held irreplaceable content.

"So as you could imagine, he would really appreciate its return. If you can help us out, we will come up with a suitable reward (and you can keep the jacket)."

Prior to the Astoria 2 gig, Dirty Pretty Things headline a charity show for Jail Guitar Doors/Real Fits at the Hackney Round Chapel in London on December 11.

They also play Hertfordshire University on December 18.
