Peter Doherty and Carl Barât to play acoustic gigs

They’re part of SOMEWHERE Festival.

Peter Doherty and Carl Barât are to play a couple of acoustic dates at London’s Hackney Empire in September.

The dates - 5th and 6th September - are part of SOMEWHERE Festival, which is hosting a residency at the theatre.

Carl says: “It’s been a long old while since Peter and I have done anything like this, we are both really excited by the prospect and I’m sure there will be a few surprises. It will be a right old night, at what is one of our favourite venues - the Hackney Empire.”

Tickets are on sale from 10am on Friday 7th June.
