Which is hardly a surprise, now is it?...

Libertines will definitely play this weekend’s CARLING WEEKEND: READING AND LEEDS FESTIVALS without estranged guitarist PETE DOHERTY.

A spokesperson for the band told NME.COM they will be joined on guitar by Anthony Rossomando, who was the guitarist on their recent US tour instead of Pete, who will play his own gigs with new band Baby Shambles this weekend.

The band, who released a new single ’Don’t Look Back Into The Sun’ last Monday which is set to be their biggest hit to date, will then start work on their second album.

NME.COM is now onsite at both festival sites, so keep clicking back all weekend for the latest news and most up-to-date reviews.
