Limerick show for indie legends The Libertines

The Libertines

WITH a new album called ‘All Quiet on The Eastern Esplanade’ The Libertines are undertaking an extensive European tour playing Live At The Big Top, Limerick Milk Market on Wednesday September 25.
Formed in Camden Town, London 1997, their singles Up The Bracket, Can’t Stand Me Now and What Became of the Likely Lads are indie classics from the albums Up The Bracket (2002) and The Libertines (2004).
For the new album, their first in nine years following up on 2015’s Anthems For Doomed Youth, Pete Doherty has revealed that the band “really came together” and found a “moment of rare peace” in the writing and recording of ‘All Quiet on The Eastern Esplanade’ in early 2023. All four band members, Carl Barât, Pete Doherty, John Hassall and Gary Powell share songwriting credits on every track.
Announcing the tour, the band’s promoter declared, “The Libertines’ once-seen-never-forgotten live shows are here to save humanity from holograms, virtual reality, and AI auto-tuned bullshit, so switch off your pocket-held marketing machine and come and experience raw analogue euphoria at the hands of these delirious musical chaos-mongers.”
Speaking at the launch Mick Dolan commented, “It’s a great privilege to invite one of the most influential bands of the last 25 years to the Milk Market. The Libertines are famous for their live performances, and it will be great to welcome the band to Limerick.
