ROCK band The Libertines have announced a major UK tour which will come to Bournemouth this year. 

The band is returning with the release of their newest album, All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade, on April 5, 2024. 

The Libertines have extended their sold-out UK tour to cater for the 'unprecedented demand,' adding a date at the O2 Academy in Bournemouth.

The concert will be held on Thursday, November 21, 2024, from 7pm at the O2 Academy in Boscombe

Priority tickets will be available on the O2 Academy's official website from 9am on Wednesday, March 20. 

A spokesperson for the O2 Academy said: "The Libertines' once-seen-never-forgotten live shows are here to save humanity from holograms, virtual reality, and AI auto-tune, so switch off your pocket-held marketing machine and come and experience raw analogue euphoria at the hands of these delirious musical chaos-mongers."

General tickets will go on sale on Friday, March 22 at 9am.

The Libertines are Peter Doherty on vocals and guitar, Carl Barât on vocals and guitar, John Hassall on bass guitar and Gary Powell on drums.

The band have released three albums: Up The Bracket (2002); The Libertines (2004); and Anthems For Doomed Youth (2015).
