As an avid fan of hip-hop music and gangster movies from the 90s, I learned very quickly that you should never trust a dope fiend. As such, Pete Doherty’s recent hints at a Libertines reunion this summer seemed dubious at best–same goes for Liam Gallagher teasing an Oasis reunion on Twitter last night. However, it turns out Doherty was telling the truth.
The Libertines Are Getting Back Together
The Libertines will play London’s British Summer Time festival on July 5th. The band will join the Pogues and Spiritualized as the festival’s headliners. This will mark the first time the Libertines have performed together since the Reading and Leeds festivals in 2010. The band’s history is troubled to say the least, so it will be interesting to see if/how this one shakes out. Watch the Libertines’ performance from the 2010 Reading festival below.
