Following the undoubted commercial and reviving success of The Libertines, the front man has taken the opportunity to plan some solo headline shows across the UK to not only showcase his first solo project Grace/Wastelands but also the forthcoming second LP.
The shows begin with an appearance at Bristol O2 Academy and finishes, not surprisingly, in Hackney Empire at the end of the month. This comes following the sold out European tour for The Libertines supporting, not only local beer companies across the continent, but their third album Anthems for Doomed Youth.
Doherty has always felt most connective when on his own, drenched in the spotlight and as fragile and vulnerable as the wilting English rose he is. Tickets go on sale at 9am on 11th March from your usual good outlets as well as some bad ones.
