Peter Doherty : ‘The Battered Songbook Tour’




Peter Doherty, the Millennial Jean Genie/Jean Genet, will embark on his first solo acoustic tour in ten years, with a series of intimate ‘Songbook’ shows in the spring. Peter will be performing a selection of nuggets from his back catalogue, including classics from The Libertines, Babyshamble and not forgetting all of his delicious solo projects/records.


Peter promises to take audiences on an unforgettable ride into his strange and fascinating world where nothing is as it seems and life itself is an intense euphoric dream. Friends and special guests are expected to join him on occasion across these seventeen dates. ‘The Battered Songbook Tour’ culminates in a show at London’s Royal Albert Hall on the 5th May.
