Dirty Pretty Things kicked off their UK tour last night in Brighton, with a gig at the Concorde 2, as part of the first Silent Disco Festival. We have some beautiful photos by Mike Burnell, and by The Avangelist. After a 4 day break the tour will be resumed properly next Saturday in Middlesbrough.
NME.com speaks about Peter's future solo commitments. We have still some doubts about some of the figures behind this adventure (that is, one), but anyway...
Pete Doherty is set to kick off a series of solo shows at the Bournemouth Opera House tomorrow night (September 24).The show will be part of a tour that will see him return to the scene of his first reunion with former Libertines bandmate Carl Barat. Pete Doherty and Carl Barat reunited at the Hackney Empire in April 2007 – the first time they had performed together since The Libertines split up. Doherty will play a solo show at the London venue again on October 2. He will also play shows in Manchester, Middlesborough and Coventry as part of the short tour. Meanwhile, the former Libertines reunited at the Prince Of Wales pub in north London on September 17, where they played an acoustic set together for London Fashion Week.

Bournemouth Opera House (September 24)
Middlesborough Town Hall (25)
Coventry Kasbah (26)
