Pete Doherty is returning to Bristol for a night of music, poetry and spoken word this week. The tour comes ahead of his second solo album which is currently being finalised, although there’s little doubt we’ll hear some classic career cuts.

Never one that’s been easy to pin down, the stint will make for a refreshing change for Doherty after hitting the festival main-stages with The Libertines last year. Billed under the name ‘Eudaimonia’, meaning happiness, welfare and human flourishing, it seems that the night at O2 Academy will be a spirited celebration. Perhaps just what we need as festival season edges closer.

There’s little doubt that the man is amongst the great songwriters of this generation. That’s exactly why this will be a show worth catching. Known for his ramshackle spontaneity and an enduring love for forlorn tales of Albion, it will be an evening of unison and celebration. Just watch the video below for a taste of the delights that are sure to unfold.

Pete Doherty will play Bristol O2 Academy on 11 May 2016.
