The Libertines are very happy to announce a nine-date Christmas jaunt across the UK in December, along with shows in France, Germany, Luxembourg, Brussels and The Netherlands in October and November.
In the early Noughties, you could not escape the sight or sounds of these infectious modern-day punks. Whether dancing at Indie clubs, reading the NME or tuning into Radio 1, The Libertines were everywhere. Top 20 hits like 'Time For Heroes' and 'Can't Stand Me Now' were on heavy rotation and they gained a somewhat obsessive fan base. But after just two short 'n' sweet albums (2002's 'Up The Bracket' and 2004's eponymous 'The Libertines', both produced by The Clash's Mick Jones) it was all over. So what became of the likely lads? Personal problems and battling demons saw Peter Doherty and Carl Barat split up and go their seperate ways with various solo projects and forming new bands. But time is a great healer and they patched up their differences to reform in 2010.
