The Libertines are playing a tiny Melbourne show on Tuesday night
British rock icons The Libertines will play a tiny show to 300 very lucky fans in Melbourne tomorrow night as a part of their first ever run of Australian dates.
The band kicked off their tour with a triumphant set at Sydney City Limits over the weekend, a show that many of their Australian fans had been waiting to happen for a decade and a half.
Now they’re in the country, it looks like they’re keen to stay busy, booking a special pub show at the John Curtin Hotel in Carlton on what was supposed to be a night off. Perhaps they’re taking a leaf out of fellow Sydney City Limits artist Beck’s book? Or maybe they’re just bored?
Given that the band very quickly sold out their show at the Forum Theatre, a venue roughly seven times the size, we strongly suggest making plans to get through those doors at the Curtin right now.
If you wanna get a ticket, you just have to be one of the first couple of hundred people at the venue when the doors open at 8pm. There will be no pre-sold tickets. For more info, go here.
The Libertines play the following dates in Australia this week:
Tuesday 27 February – The Curtin, Melbourne
Wednesday 28 February – The Forum, Melbourne (SOLD OUT)
Thursday 1 March – The Tivoli, Brisbane
