Never miss another 'The Libertines' show
Prior to their triumphant appearance at Hyde Park, in front of a sold out crowd of 65,000 fans, the Libertines announced they will be headlining three shows at Alexandra Palace in London.
The Libertines, founded originally in 1997 by frontmen Pete Doherty and Carl Barat also included John Hassall (bass) and Gary Powell (drums) for most of their recording career. Described as raw, energetic nu-punk with a joyful depth to their lyrical musings (NME), their mainstream success was initially limited, only being signed to Rough Trade Records in 2001. However their profile soon grew, playing alongside bands such as The Strokes, and after releasing their debut album 'Up The Bracket' (2002) to a lukewarm reception, released their better received 2nd self-titled album 'The Libertines' in 2004.
In spite of their successes Doherty's hugely publicised difficulties with drug addiction strained relationships within the band and with Barat, which eventually led to their break-up that year. Members went on to form new bands, until March 2010 when they reformed for Leeds/Reading Festivals as special guests. The band have since come back together for a show at London's Barclaycard presents British Summertime Hyde Park in 2014. This reunion has proved to be longer-lived, resulting in a return to Reading & Leeds in 2015, plus the release of their third album, Anthems For Doomed Youth.
