Pete Doherty has announced a trio of solo gigs ahead of The Libertines’ massive reunion show in Hyde Park next month.
The singer will play Nottingham, Oxford and Bristol on the stretch in the run-up to the band’s homecoming gig on July 5.
The Libertines will 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 band 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.”
