Pete, Carl, John and Gary will make a long-awaited return to the stage, playing their first full live shows since 2010.

Forming at the turn of the century, The Libertines are considered one of the most important bands of their generation. Leading the charge with Pete Doherty and Carl Barât as song writing partners, their onstage chemistry and intense live performances have enthralled fans and critics alike since their debut album Up The Bracket in 2002.

However, it wasn’t all plain sailing for the darlings of the early noughties. Doherty’s troubled relationship with Barât, mainly fuelled by Doherty’s drug addiction, ensured the band broke up in 2004.

The band temporarily reformed in 2010 to play the Reading and Leeds festivals.

Tickets for the concert will go on general sale on Friday, May 2. Click here for more information.
