Peter Doherty To Play Galway

Just announced an Irish Tour which includes a trip up north to the Belfast's Mandela Hall on the 13th then Dublin on the 14th of October in the Academy and finally the Roisin Dubh on the 15th. This gig is part of the magical gigs run by Heineken Green Spheres. Its all free and are just the best nights of music and entertainment. I have been wanting to see this guy live ever since my ears got hold of the libertines. Its quite amazing that I witnessed Carl Barat the other half of the libertines thanks to Heineken Green Spheres last year in dolans.

So Heineken are once again providing an awesome night down in galway this time to see the legend that is Pete Doherty. I have missed his shows several times before and now here is the opportunity. I'm off to play the libertines and wait with anticipation.
The tickets can be got through their website(www.heinekengreenspheres.ie) but wont come available until September so hold your horses awhile. Keep an eye here for more news.
From the Blurb :

After hosting many stunning performances in its debut outing at Oxegen, Heineken Green Spheres returns to wow music fans by bringing their idols to intimate settings. This time we’re heading to Galway with Peter Doherty.

Support: TBA
Thursday October 15th in Roisin Dubh, Galway.
Memories are still fresh of amazing performances on the Heineken Green Spheres stage at Oxegen, none more so than our previous Green Spheres' act Friendly Fires in Waterford and the next one, Peter Doherty, who has just been confirmed to play Galway in October.
Peter Doherty needs no introduction at this stage. The singer-songwriter from The Libertines and Babyshambles has made his most recent reincarnation as a solo artist with his critically acclaimed debut ‘Grace/Wastelands’ being released this spring.
Heineken Green Spheres is proud to follow up its triumphant shows in Limerick (Reverend and the Makers) and Waterford (Friendly Fires) with Peter in Galway’s legendary music venue – the Roisin Dubh. We’re painting the town ‘Green’ for one night only!
Having turned thirty in March, Doherty embarks on a new phase of his career. Continuing to defy categorisation, Peter Doherty brought producer Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur) on board and teamed up with Graham Coxon on his new album.
“I’ve always liked Coxon, it seems, and I don’t know why,” explains Doherty. “I was absolutely horrified when he said he was actually a fan of some of the things I’ve done”
‘Grace/Wastelands’ is “the sound of his heart breaking and it's beautiful” said the Observer Music Monthly. “The sense of chaos has gone, and with it the sense of naivety that pervaded his earlier works.”
Fans will have to be patient as the ticket office doesn't open until September, for further details log on to www.heinekengreenspheres.ie
