So, there’s that rumour put to bed; Carl Barat has said that The Libertines will not be playing this year’s Glastonbury.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Barat said: “Getting back together at Reading & Leeds was more than I could ever imagine and made me understand and realise what an impact the band had on a generation. In time I would be keen to do it again but Pete Doherty and I are busy doing other things. It’s definitely not over between us, we’re just waiting for the right time. The next thing will be something special”.
