All four of the Libertines – Frontmen Pete Doherty and Carl Barat, as well as drummer Gary Powell and bassist John Hassell – regrouped for the press conference, at the Boogaloo pub in North London to confirm their reunion. The band, announced earlier this week that they will perform at this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals in August.

And during the press conference the group put on an impromptu eight-song set which included “Georgia On My Mind”, “The Good Old Days”, “Music When the Lights Go Out”, “France”, “Death on the Stairs”, “Sally Brown”, “Time For Heroes” and ended with “Can’t Stand Me Now”.

The Libertines revealed that they had no plans to perform any new material at the festivals, “We haven’t got plans to because it’s going to be hard enough to remember some riffs from the old days,” said Doherty.
