The Libertines

The Libertines failed to appear for their show at Camden’s Electric Ballroom last night, the audience eventually being told at around 11.30pm that a “medical situation” meant that the show would be postponed.

According to the NME, a spokesperson told the increasingly disgruntled crowd: “Due to an emergency – a medical situation – tonight’s show is being postponed. I say postponed because I mean postponed, not cancelled. A new date will be released tomorrow”.

A statement posted to the band’s Facebook page at 1am added: “Due to unforeseen circumstances tonight the Libertines have had to postpone their sold out shows at the Electric Ballroom in Camden and at the Ritz in Manchester tomorrow night. Peter, Carl, John and Gary apologise whole-heartedly to their fans and will reschedule both shows as soon as possible. This will not effect any of The Libertines’ other commitments”.

The band’s new album, ‘Anthems For A Doomed Youth’, is out today.
