Band announce run of live shows in September and October
The Libertines have announced details of a European tour to take place later this year.
The dates will take place in September and October and take in shows in France, Holland, Belgium and Germany. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 20 at 9am. See below for full details.
This follows the announcement earlier this year that The Libertines will reunite this summer to play a headline show at London’s Hyde Park on July 5. A warm-up for the Hyde Park show will take place at Glasgow’s Barrowland Ballroom on June 29.
They subsequently announced they would also be headlining the Spanish Benicàssim Festival, playing on the Saturday night (July 19) and Optimus Alive festival in Lisbon, Portugal, on July 12.
Speaking to NME recently about The Libertines‘ forthcoming London show, co-frontman Pete Doherty said he was thinking about finishing off some of the band’s older material for the occasion. “We were talking about doing some new songs,” he explained. “Or even better, finishing some old songs that we always knew should have been on ‘Up The Bracket’ if we could have been arsed. I could hum them and Carl would know about them.”
The Libertines will play:
Paris Zenith (September 30)
Amsterdam Heineken Music Hall (October 2)
Brussels FN Club (3)
Berlin Columbiahalle (4)
Dusseldorf Mitsubishi Electric Halle (5)
