British indie and post-punk icons The Libertines have added an extra Manchester date to their upcoming UK comeback tour as more and more shows are selling out.

After announcing their highly-anticipated return with a huge gig at the legendary Albert Hall here in Manchester city centre, The Libertines have now been forced into adding not only a second but a third extra date due to overwhelming numbers of tickets already sold.

Set to release their first new record in nine years entitled, All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade on Friday, 15 March, the London-based rockers are coming back with a bang and it’s clear the demand for their revival is well and truly there.

Now playing adding the Saturday night to their sell-out Thursday and Friday shows at Albert Hall from 7-9 November — London being the only other city on the UK tour to be graced with three dates — the Manchester music scene will be welcoming them back with open arms.

The Libertines’ fourth studio LP comes nearly a decade on from the reunion following their 10-year split and with co-frontman Pete Doherty now in a much healthier place after struggles with addiction issues, it looks like the creative juices are well and truly flowing.


Scheduled to release on Friday, 5 April, the early reviews for the new album are looking strong, with the likes of Hot Press calling it “The most evolutionary record in The Libertines’ cannon…a pure gem” and The Guardian already dubbing it “a classic Libertines album”.

Strong words considering how long the four-piece have been away and how their rifts have limited the amount of music they’ve produced since they first formed all the way back in 1997.


Also set to play an acoustic out-store event with Crash Records at Manchester Academy on Saturday, 6 April (which also sold out in a flash) we won’t pretend to be anything other than very excited to see what they’ve come up with. We also love what we’ve heard so far:

You best be quick if you want one last chance to be at these long-waited comeback gigs.
