Libertines To Play UK Festivals In 2010

August 19, 2009 by  


Chief Libertine Pete Doherty has confirmed that The Libertines will be playing UK festival shows in 2010.

Speaking ahead of his solo show at V Festival this weekend, Doherty explained to that he has already managed to recruit Libs members Gary Powell and John Hassall and once Carl Barat gives the ok they’ll confirm shows.

Pete said: ?It’s (the reunion shows) gonna happen, you know. I spoke to John Hassall and he’s well up for it.?

Asked about whether Gary Powell would be up for it, Pete added: ?He said he would.?

Pete jokingly remarked if Carl decided not to join them, he may get a look-alike to stand in: “Maybe I could reform The Libertines without him, like he did without me.?
