British rock band The Libertines have announced a brand new tour, which will stop off at Scarborough Spa later this year.

The London four-piece will perform live in the venue’s Grand Hall on Tuesday 26 September, as part of the ‘…Tiddeley Om Pom Pom Tour’ - a unique run of shows that will only be performed at seven British seaside towns.

The Libertines, which features Peter Doherty, Carl Barât, John Hassall and Gary Powell, released their highly anticipated third album ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’ in September 2015. The album, which was recorded in Thailand, entered the UK Album Charts at No. 3 and received great critical applause on its release.

In 2015 The Libertines headlined The Reading & Leeds Festivals, T In The Park, along with festivals across Europe in France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Russia, Spain, Mexico, The Netherlands and Hong Kong. The Libertines embarked on their biggest UK tour to date in 2017 with seven arena shows finishing at the O2 in London on January 30th.

Their visit to Scarborough Spa’s Grand Hall will certainly be an intimate performance, giving fans a unique opportunity to see the band like they’ve never seen them before.

Carl Barât, vocals/guitar for the band said “We're looking for a home, one roof for the many splendoured trappings of Arcady, a factory, with a guest house, bar and studio. We do like to be beside the seaside and we hope to find that home on this tour... watch this space...”
