The Libertines Documentary has been postponed

The film tour for The Libertines – There Are no Innocent Bystanders has been postponed. The tour which, was due to begin on Monday19th March, to take place in key cities at the O2 Academy venues, has been rescheduled to take place at the end of April 2012. The decision was taken as Roger Sargent, the band’s longstanding photographer and director of the film, was taken ill earlier this week. He was due to host Q&A sessions with the fans after each screening.

Sargent commented: “ We are really disappointed to have to postpone the tour but I have tonsillitis and cannot do much talking at the moment! We are delighted to have been able to schedule later dates, so hopefully everyone who has bought tickets will still be able to come along in April / May and the fans will still have the chance to see the film in a live environment.

These unique music venue screenings will still take place and we are pleased to announce a partnership with the local club nights to screen the films at their events. The dates will coincide with the general release of the film on DVD which is 30th April. Those who have bought tickets for the tour screenings will be offered entry into these events with a £2 refund on their original ticket price. They also have the opportunity of a full refund.

The new tour dates for The Libertines – There are no Innocent Bystanders are:
  • O2 Academy Liverpool - 25 April
  • O2 Academy Birmingham - 27 April
  • O2 ABC Glasgow - 27 April
  • O2 Academy Islington - 2 May
  • O2 Academy Bristol - 4 May
  • O2 Newcastle - 5 May

The Libertines: There Are No Innocent Bystanders will play for one night in cinemas across the UK on Tuesday 27th March 2012. Full list of cinemas is available on www.thelibertinesfilm.com

THE LIBERTINES: THERE ARE NO INNOCENT BYSTANDERS is an engaging and honest music documentary by legendary photographer turned filmmaker, Roger Sargent. The film offers an intimate look at the band’s 2010 reunion with unrivalled access, starting at Sargent’s NME cover shoot announcing the big festival appearance at Reading and Leeds, through the rehearsals and celebrated warm up shows, to being on stage on the big night.

Sargent’s relationship with the band has enabled him to create the definitive film about arguably one of the most influential groups of its generation, exploring the passion, drive, love and laughter of The Libertines’ story. He successfully unlocks the personalities and relationships of the band and navigates the viewer through the tensions behind this most celebrated and hotly debated of reunions.
Narrated by the band in their own words, the film spans the period of time from the announcement of the reunion to the weekend of the Reading and Leeds festivals – their first ‘on the road’ experience together for six years. With this as a backdrop, Sargent explores the history of the band, allowing them to intimately discuss how they became what they are and revealing untold stories along the way.
Pulse Films is excited to be taking advantage of new opportunities offered by emerging digital platforms to self-release their fourth feature-length documentary, THE LIBERTINES: THERE ARE NO INNOCENT BYSTANDERS in the UK market. The documentary opened London’s East End Film Festival in April 2011 and has been on a highly successful tour of the international film festival circuit picking up international sales representation along the way.
