It won’t be Doherty’s only intimate London performance of the year, with The Libertines set to perform four shows at Kentish Town’s O2 Forum, this December as part of their Winter ‘Giddy Up A Ding-Dong’ tour.
A statement about these “up close and personal” shows, which were teased by the band earlier last week, added: “The Libertines are pleased as punch to announce a fifteen-date Christmas jaunt across the UK in November and December, including two shows at London’s O2 Forum the scene of the bands legendary shows in December 2003.”
In October last year, Carl Barat spoke to NME to discuss an update on their long-awaited follow-up to 2015’s ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’.
“It’s been going well, but it’s been difficult with COVID,” Barat explained. “We started writing here, and that was going really well but John [Hassall, bass] is in Denmark and Pete [Doherty] is in France. It’s been a fucker to travel.
In March, meanwhile, Doherty revealed that he’s now mostly sober since relocating to France.
“At the moment I’m quite clean. I stopped taking heroin and ketamine,” The Libertines’ frontman said. “I like experimenting, making cocktails with champagne, a bit of rum, orange juice. I’m coming across like a bit of an alcoholic, but I’m not – I like a nice glass of water.”Credit: Original article published here.
