The Libertines have vowed their reunion will be "truly memorable", as they prepare to play their first concert for four years at Glasgow Barrowlands tonight (June 28).

It's the first of two shows at the venue as the reunited four-piece warm up for their headline concert at Barclaycard British Summer Time at Hyde Park on July 5.

"We make our full live return with the first of two shows in Glasgow, warming up for the big one in Hyde Park next Saturday," said the statement on the band's Facebook page, adding a link to the festival. "We've been on quite a journey getting to this point, and where we go from here - who knows. What's a safe bet though, is that the next few weeks are going to be truly memorable. The first show in Scotland with all four of us in ten years... and then our biggest ever headline performance in London. Incredible. Thanks for sticking with us Albion, and here's one for good old times amigos." It linked to the video for their hit 'Don't Look Back Into The Sun'.

Both Pete Doherty and Carl Barat have said that they are considering writing new songs as part of their reunion for their first fresh material since 2004's self-titled second album. There was no sign of new songs when they last reformed, to headline Reading And Leeds Festival in 2010.

After Hyde Park, The Libertines headline Benicassim festival on July 19, before going on their first tour in September of mainland Europe since 2004.
