Pete Doherty - Pete Doherty Sparks The Libertines Reunion Rumour

British rocker Pete Doherty has sparked rumours his cult band The Libertines is planning to reform for a huge summer gig at London's Hyde Park.

The group was tipped for big things following the release of its debut album in 2002 but they split just two years later (04) following a series of bust-ups over frontman Doherty's drug habit.

They reformed in 2010 to play two sets at the U.K.'s Reading and Leeds festival, and now Doherty claims he has agreed to another comeback with a massive concert in July (14).

Israeli newspaper Ynet quotes Doherty as saying, "I don't know if I'm supposed to even tell you this, but we were offered to reform The Libertines for a show this July in Hyde Park. I got the call just yesterday. Well, I said yes.

"Not long ago I listened to The Libertines songs on YouTube and had a burst of nostalgia so I said what the heck, and then they told me how much they will pay us and I cannot lie to you, I couldn't say no, at least not in my state right now."

The rumour was bolstered hours after the interview emerged on Sunday (20Apr14) when the band's page was altered to contain a photograph of a map of Hyde Park, but no official confirmation has yet been announced.
