The controversial The Libertines co-frontman and guitarist will be appearing with indie-rockers Babyshambles at the Forum Hertfordshire on Friday, October 11 as part of the group’s Sequel To The Prequel UK tour.

Tickets for the Hatfield show, which was officially announced this morning (Monday), will be £23 in advance and will be available on 02 Priority and artist pre-sale from Wednesday, May 1.

They go on general public sale from Friday, May 3 from the Forum box office and website at http://www.forumhertfordshire.co.uk

Band members are currently putting the finishing touches to their third album in a Paris studio and are looking forward to road testing the new tracks live in front of their fans.

Reports leaking from the locked down studio suggest their much-anticipated follow-up to 2007 release Shotter’s Nation is a huge return to form.

Babyshambles guitarist Mick Whitnall said: “I’m equally excited to get back on the road again as I am to see the fans’ reaction to the new material. Looking forward to it.”

Shows on Babyshambles’ two-month tour, which starts at Glasgow Barrowlands on September 4 and finishes at O2 Academy in Bournemouth on October 21, will be the group’s first UK dates since the band played in November 2010.
