Pete Doherty has announced he has accepted an offer to resurrect The Libertines for a live show at Hyde Park, due to take place in July.
The shock announcement of a Libertines reunion comes from an interview with Doherty, for Israeli newspaper, Ynet, which was then translated by The Music. It has been revealed that Doherty has given the green light on The Libertines reunion, however, the rest of the band have yet to make a comment of Doherty’s outburst.
“I don’t know if I’m supposed to even tell you this, but we were offered to reform The Libertines for a show this July in Hyde Park” Pete Doherty allegedly told the magazine.
“I got the call just yesterday. Well, I said yes!”
Doherty then went on to say: “Not long ago I listened to The Libertines’ songs on YouTube and had a burst of nostalgia, so I said what the heck, and then they told me how much they will pay us, and I cannot lie to you, I couldn’t say no, at least not in my state right now….” Following up this brutally honest confession with: “I’m in debt. It’s very complicated for me to say no right now, I have financial problems”
Although Doherty may be up for the reunion, the rest of the band has yet to make their mark on the subject. With his ex-band member, Carl Barat, recently forming brand-new band ‘The Jackals’ and has revealed plans to drop a solo album in the near future – the light of hope shines dimly on The Libertines reunion.
