Libertines reunion

Pete and Carl meet in London pub

Pete Doherty and Carl Barat staged a surprise reunion in London this week (July 18).

The former Libertines met at the Dublin Castle pub in Camden and chatted over pints for two hours before chatting with members of Los Angeles band Tender Box (pictured) who were playing their first UK show at the venue.

The drinking session was the first time the pair have met up since their first post Libertines reunion at the Boogaloo Bar in Highgate last year.
