With Pete's drug issues aside, the band stated that their reunion gig could mean a future for The Libertines.
Lead guitarist Carl Barat of Dirty Pretty Things fame, who once claimed he could never work with Doherty again said: "When you start a band you don't know what's gonna happen or what your gonna do."
He added: "We will take everything as it comes and it could be the start of something good...It was really good to see the guys again as we love playing music."
Pete continued: "We were so desperate to do something. I'm dying to play our songs and get some new things done."
Things must be looking up in The Libertines camp as the front man even claimed there were no hard feelings over their split, especially between him and Carl stating: "Forgive and forget that's what I say."
The reformed rockers, are excited about playing the prestigious festivals at the end of August, but for any fans who are worried they won't show up or split again, the band reassured it wouldn't happen.
Carl said: "5 months is along time for The Libertines but we are dead excited about the reunion and to get on stage and say 'we are The Libertines'. It's what It's all about."
Pete agreed with his bandmate adding: "We are going to be performing a warm up show and we are not going to fall out again, not before Reading. It's gonna happen."
