The Libertines Pull Out Of Live Lounge Appearance Due To A Medical Emergency

Written by:

Stereo Embers has learned that The Libertines have cancelled yet another live appearance.

Set to play on Radio One’s Live Lounge Monday, September 14, the band have opted out of the popular Jo Whiley program.

The reason for the cancellation is, according to the band’s FB page, a “medical emergency.”

An offering of acoustic performances consisting of originals and unexpected covers, The Libertines were set to debut spare versions of some of the tracks from their new album Anthems For Doomed Youth.

For fans of the Libertines, the last seven days have been tumultuous and troubling.

What should have been a triumphant celebration of the release of their first new album in eleven years has instead turned into a string of unexplained concert cancellations and worries about the health of singer Pete Doherty.

Although the Libertines tweeted that Doherty was indeed okay, nothing else has been offered.

All we know is that a medical situation and a medical emergency are the two reasons that have been given for the band’s failure to play dates in London, Manchester and the Radio One gig.

With a full schedule of dates coming up, many are wondering if the band will be in form to play any of them and there have been fears voiced by their fans that the whole tour will be scrapped.

More news as we get it.
