Libertines announce gig

Four-piece band The Libertines have announced a warm-up gig ahead of their official comeback festival appearances.

The band, who are set to make their return with performances at Reading and Leeds later this month, will play an intimate show ahead of their festival appearances.

The Libertines will play at London's The Forum on August 25, their first appearance since 2004. 

Due to limited spaces, the group have launched an online ballot through their official website, where fans will be offered tickets at random for £30.
