Revered rock star Peter Doherty will visit Bristol when he performs a handful of shows across the country in May.

Doherty is the former frontman of The Libertines, who enjoyed huge success during the early and mid-2000s.

They played at numerous festivals, including Reading and Leeds, and had major success with the singles Don’t Look Back Into The Sun and Can’t Stand Me Now, but were dogged by controversy due to Doherty’s drug and alcohol addictions.

Doherty also enjoyed fame with post-Libertines project Babyshambles, who released the albums Down In Albion in 2005, Shotter’s Nation in 2007 and Sequel To The Prequel in 2013.

He released his first solo album, Grace/Wastelands, in 2009, and is in the process of putting the finishing touches to his as-yet-unnamed second solo album.

Peter Doherty will be at the O2 Academy, in Frogmore Street, Bristol, at 7pm on May 11.
