The Libertines Set To Reform
So after years of rumours and hearsay, it looks like the day has finally come that Pete and Carl will give in for the huge sums being offered and take to the stage again.
The duo have appeared together on stage briefly a number of times in the last few years and with their respective careers not exactly going to plan (Babyshambles and Dirty Pretty Things feel like a poor imitation of the original incarnation, while Pete's solo album was pretty forgettable) it seemed inevitable that a big payday for the festival scene would get them back together.
The Guardian reports that the duo will pocket a cool £1.5million for the reunion, expected to take place at the Reading and leeds Festivals between 27th and 29th August.
Could be the big gig of the summer that one. Unmissable.
If Pete actually makes it that is.
