A while back Pete Doherty made it known that The Libertines had been offered in upwards of £2 million to reunite for festival season, and bandmate Carl Barat pretty much immediately put the kabash on anything of the sort. But then the two seemed chummy at the NME Shockwave Awards, and now Pete “Publicity Machine” Doherty is back at it again, saying The Libertines reunion will definitely happen. What’s different now, Petey?
We’re going to have to wait to find out. In an interview with NME Radio, Doherty outlines his plan to get Carl and the rest of the gang back together. He also discusses his upcoming solo tour (and plans to bring along Graham Coxon) and his recent falling out with Wolfman.
On The Libertines reunion, Doherty told Neil Cole “it’s going to happen. It’s unfinished business, isn’t it?” You can listen to the full interview, airing tomorrow at noon GMT (7 a.m. EST) and again on Saturday.
