The Libertines Reuniting For Reading & Leeds

The Libertines
Like that other early 2000s band that was said to have saved rock on this side of the Atlantic (The Strokes), The Libertines have reunited for a ridiculous sum of money to play some festival dates. The band originally released two albums, many singles and much more unreleased material. The band broke up after songwriting duo Pete Doherty and Carl Barât began to develop problems with each other in 2004. Now the band will be playing at the UK’s Reading and Leeds festivals this summer. According to The Guardian they will be payed £1.5 million or $2.25 million. Reading and Leeds are set to take place from August 27 to the 29. Hopefully they will be able to keep it together and make their way to the US for some shows unlike Blur.

    i just thought i’d point out the fact that playing in the u.s. is not really an option. pete doherty isn’t allowed in this country. perhaps we could sneak him in? i’m down to help. saw babyshambles in italy 4 years ago and it was one of the best & wildest spectacles i’ve ever witnessed.
