The Libertines Reform For Reading & Leeds
And a huge pay day…
Monday, March 29, 2010 - 14:00
The Libertines are set to get back together especially for headline slots at Reading and Leeds festivals, according to various reports.
The band split in 2004 because of Pete Doherty’s drug problems after releasing two albums loved by indie fans.
Now it’s claimed they’ll get a cool £1.5 million pay packet for just two gigs at the dual site event.
The official line up for Reading and Leeds is announced later today when tickets also go on sale.
The Sun claims that The Libertines are considering more live shows and even writing new material together.
Since the band disbanded Pete has released a solo album and two discs with new group Babyshambles.
His creative partner in the band Carl Barat formed Dirty Pretty Things.
