The Libertines to play reunion show, ten years after their breakup
British garage rockers The Libertines have announced a reunion show on July 5 at London's Hyde Park. The performance comes ten years since the band's latest album and subsequent breakup. The quartet reunited for two U.K. festival performances in 2010, but has been inactive since. Frontman Pete Doherty claimed the reason for the one-off performance is that: "It’s very complicated for me to say no right now, I have financial problems." [via Pitchfork]
