Possible Libertines Reunion Gigs in the Works


After a reunion gig at London’s Rhythm Factory, Libertines frontman and lead guitarist Carl Barat mentioned the possibility of more shows from the band.

Pete Doherty, Gary Powell and Barat came together in May as part of a tribute show for late promoter Johnny Sedassy, a former organizer for the band.

Though Barat admitted he was still focused on his solo material, the singer told NME that he “wouldn’t rule out” another impromptu gig or two from the Libertines.

“I can’t rule it out, but I’d rather save it [playing with the Libertines again]. That’s not to say I won’t get on stage with Pete at some point soon,” he said.

Barat went on to hint that next year could be the year for these reunion shows: “Next year is a new year. We’ll see what happens.”

The former Libertines frontman is currently working toward both a solo album and a tour.
