The Libertines announce warm-up gig details
The Libertines will play their first full gig since 2004 on August 25.
The 'Up The Bracket' rockers - who are reforming later in the month at the high-profile Reading and Leeds festivals - will perform an intimate comeback show at London's HMV Forum just a few days before they take to the stage for their eagerly anticipated festival appearances.
Tickets for the event won't be going on general sale, but fans of the 'Can't Stand Me Now' hitmakers have can enter a ballot on the band's website from today (10.08.10) until Friday, which will distribute the tickets at random.
A Libertines spokesperson said: "The band felt this was the fairest way to distribute tickets and to avoid fans being charged extortionate amounts for them."
Co-frontman Carl Barat recently admitted the band - - also comprising Pete Doherty, John Hassall and Gary Powell - haven't rehearsed together since they announced their reformation in March.
He explained: "It's always a bit last minute with The Libertines. If we did it any other way it wouldn't be The Libertines.
"We've got a bit of time blocked out. As I say it's a bit last minute - it always is. Of course we'll be able to do it and we'll be able to do it with aplomb."Posted on 10 Aug 2010 16:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
