As previously announced Peter Doherty and Carl Barât play two acoustic shows at London’s Hackney Empire on Thursday 5th September and Friday 6th September, as part of Somewhere Festival, which sold-out within minutes of going on sale.

Peter Doherty recently released his acclaimed new album ‘Peter Doherty &  The Puta Madres’ and toured the UK and Europe. Carl Barât latterly returned from a sold-out tour of the Far East. The Libertines are   currently working on their fourth album, the follow-up to the No.3 UK charting album  ’Anthems For Doomed Youth’  (2015), which spawned the hits   ‘Gunga Din,’ ‘Heart Of The Matter’ and ‘You’re My Waterloo.’

 

The Libertines released their debut single, ‘What A Waster,’ in 2002. A second single ‘Up The Bracket’ was released in September of the same year and hit the UK Top 30 and was followed by their debut album, also entitled ‘Up The Bracket’ (produced by Mick Jones – The Clash). ‘Time For Heroes’ was unveiled in January 2003, followed by ‘Don’t Look Back Into The Sun’ (produced by Bernard Butler). A second album, ‘The  Libertines,’ was released in August 2004 and entered the UK album chart at Number One, spawning the top 10 singles ‘Can’t Stand Me Now’ and ‘What Became Of The Likely Lads.’

 

Following the release of ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’ The Libertines played to over a million fans worldwide, including sold-out shows at Hyde Park, three nights at Alexandra Palace, seven UK Arena shows, Brixton Academy, The Roundhouse, The Royal Festival Hall, along with headlining Reading, Leeds, Y Not, Victorious, Truck, T In The Park and On Blackheath Festivals.
