Pete Doherty announces solo Stoke gig before Libertines Hyde Park dates
The singer will play a short, four-date tour in advance of the band's reunion show
The singer has already announced three dates on the stretch – Nottingham, Oxford and Bristol – and has now added a show in Stoke.
The shows come before The Libertines headline a huge Hyde Park show in London on July 5. The band will also play two warm-up shows at Glasgow's Barrowlands on June 28 and 29 in advance of the gig. Tickets for all three shows are on sale now.
The Libertines have so far announced two European festivals and a five-date European tour on top of the UK shows. 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."
