The Libertines Reunite At London Gig


In what’s sure to make Britpoppers around the world break out their army jackets and Cockney accents, three out of four members of the U.K.’s Libertines reunited on stage late Friday night at London’s Rhythm Factory for a tribute show for promoter Johnny “Rhythm” Sedassy. Pete Doherty and Carl Barat, who’ve popped up here and there at each other’s gig in between fighting with each other, were joined on stage by drummer Gary Powell for the first time since the band’s dissipation five years ago. Bass player John Hassell, sadly, was out of the country.

The six song showcase, of which you can see “Can’t Stand Me Now” which can be viewed in its entirety on here, has been rumored for some time now, leaving many to wonder if this will lead to more shows for the band. Only time will tell.
