On the road (to recovery): Pete Doherty to bring his own drugs counsellor on tour with The Libertines

Pete Doherty to bring his own drugs counsellor on tour with The Libertines

Dylan Kerr will join Doherty and co. on the road in November.

The Libertines frontman is set to take a personal drugs counsellor with him on tour, as his band hits the road in November.

Dylan Kerr will join the band on a run of dates this Winter as they tour the world. According to The Sunday Telegraph: “Doherty’s drug counsellor is now part of the Libertines’ inner circle… an Englishman called Dylan Kerr, 32, is present this evening, as he has been for much of the band’s five-week stay at the residential studio.”

Speaking to the Telegraph about Doherty’s progress - he finished rehabilitation treatment at Thailand’s Hope Rehabilitation Centre earlier this year, before going on tour - Kerr said: “He’s obviously very happy with the way things are going. Performance-wise it has been pretty amazing, in some ways. He has achieved a hell of a lot.”

The Libertines’ new album, ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’, is due out 4th September.
