The Libertines

— uk

  • Sat, July 8th


  • Exclusive concert!

Since burying the hatchet in 2015, Carl Barât and Pete Doherty have left The Libertines’ tumultuous history behind. After the inevitable implosion of the band due to years of self-destruction and tabloid fodder, Britain’s sharpest writing duo of the past two decades was reunited at last. And with ‘Anthems for a Doomed Youth’, their comeback was complete.

It felt like justice finally arrived for the writers of evergreen Britpop hits like ‘Don’t Look Back Into The Sun’ and ‘What a Waster’, songs that made many early noughties’ teens stereo’s smell like old beer and half-smoked cigarettes.

And the band has lost nothing of the quickly escalating pubcrawl type energy that typified their earlier years. A reminder of what pure rock should sound like. Exclusive concert!
