The Libertines

Critics' choice

After a reunion in Hyde Park earlier this year, Carl Barât and Pete Doherty's bunch of grungy indie roughnecks will be taking to the stage on three consecutive nights at Ally Pally. This is their first full-scale reunion since they broke up a decade ago, so it looks as though the well-publicised animosity between the band's members seems to have cooled – although it's kind of a strange time for them to get together again, with Barat's new band, The Jackals, just beginning to mount their own musical campaign. Whatever the circumstances, you can be sure that these shows will be a blessing for the legions of eternal Libertines fans, who most certainly can still stand them now.
