The Libertines Reunion Actually Happened. Now What?

Well, according to various reports, most notably on the NME site, The Libertines reunion at the Reading and Leeds festivals went off without a hitch. Despite some set stoppages due to fan crushes apparently, the band cranked out the hits without a word of what the future may hold.

I think most fans would trade in their Babyshambles and Dirty Pretty Things albums for one more halfway decent Libs release.

I hate to say it but the band looks safe in this clip. I certainly don't want to advocate for the Doherty-styled excesses of the past but the Libs look as normal as The Bluetones here, despite the exciting song.

The element of danger is gone, even if it was fake all along.
