The Mirror reports Peter Doherty and Carl Barat are once again reforming The Libertines for a full scale UK and European tour
The tabloid reported that the band will play a "string of festival appearances" which adds to speculation
the band will play the Isle Of Wight Festival 2012, V Festival 2012 and T in the Park 2012.
Festival organiser for The Isle Of Wight Festival, John Giddings, told Virtual
Festivals in 2010 that he'd 'love' The Libertines to
play the festival.
Carl Barat also revealed
earlier this year he'd signed a new deal with Power Amp for both solo and The Libertines shows.
The Libertines reformed for Reading and Leeds Festival
last year, which was their first festival shows together since splitting in 2004.
The band have not released any material since their 2004 sophomore self-titled album.
Peter Doherty will headline the Festival
Republic Stage at Reading Festival 2011
on Sunday 28 August and Leeds Festival
2011 on Friday 26 August.
