Carl Barât added to Back To Ours festival line-up

The Libertines co-frontman and lead guitarist will take to the stage in Hull next week.

Acclaimed musician Carl Barât – who rocked Hull Ice Arena last September with The Libertines – will return to Hull for a special show at North Point Shopping Centre on Sat 17 Feb. Taking place as part of Back To Ours festival, the gig will be hot on the heels of a sold-out Reverend & The Makers show the night before.

As a member of The Libertines, Carl released two albums, Up The Bracket (2002) and The Libertines (2004) to critical acclaim.

His next band, Dirty Pretty Things, released Waterloo To Anywhere (2006) and Romance At Short Notice (2008), followed by a solo album, Carl Barât, in 2010 and his first book Threepenny Memoir – The Lives Of A Libertine in the same year.

Barât also went on to form new group The Jackals, via Facebook after posting an advert for guitarists, drummers and bassists which pulled in over 1,000 applicants. Last year the band followed up their acclaimed debut album Let It Reign (2015) with their EP The Harder They Fall.

Tickets for Carl Barât will be available from North Point Shopping Centre from 10am on Sat 10 Feb, priced at £7.50. Any remaining tickets will be on sale online on Mon 12 Feb at 6pm.

Back To Ours festival director Louise Yates said: “The gigs at Back To Ours are always a popular choice so when Reverend & The Makers sold out, we decided to add an extra gig onto the line-up. We expect tickets to be snapped up so if you don’t want to miss out, get yourself along to North Point Saturday morning.”

Tickets are still available online for a host of family-friendly Back To Ours shows taking place from 13 to 18 Feb, including Jeddybears & Gary’s Picnic, The Amazing Bubble Man, Hotel Paradiso, The Giant’s Loo Roll and Picture House. See the full-line up.
