Libertines to reunite at Glastonbury?

Rumours say Pete and Carl could play festival together

Following Pete Doherty and Carl Barat’s first recording session in three years on Friday (June 15), there are now rumours the pair will play another gig together at Glastonbury this weekend.

As previously reported on NME.COM, The Libertines pair hit the studio last week to record a cover of ’A Day In The Life’ for a Radio 2 ‘Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ covers project.

Now according to newspaper reports the pay will play live together at Glastonbury.


Both Dirty Pretty Things and Babyshambles play the event and The Mirror suggests the two frontmen will also play a get together, the first since reuniting onstage in April at the Evening With Pete Doherty shows at Hackney Empire.

Pete and Carl are still arguing about what songs they’re going to perform,” excitedly speculates the paper of the Glasto reunion, “but whatever they settle on, it’ll be incredible.”

If the pair do reunite, you will be able to read it first on NME.COM which is bringing news, blogs and pictures live from the Glastonbury site all weekend.
