The Libertines pre-festival warm up announced! HMV Forum 25th August 2010

The Libertines

Well, the moment has finally arrived and the hype is all but over - Doherty and Barat will finally play the HMV Forum on 25th August, just prior to their Leeds and Reading appearances during the following weekend.

To be in with a chance of going to see them live at a 'proper' club venue, click on the "Libertines Ballot" button, below and register your email address and name into the ticket-ballot. You have until 6pm this Friday to register. You will then be notified on Monday 16th with a special code which you can redeem until 10am Wednesday 18th.

This may sound elaborate but the aim is to limit the amount of greedy touts and online-sellers from ripping off real fans, well that's the theory anyway. It'll be the first full gig from the band in a good few years, although they have had a few ad hoc and partial reunions before.

So if you want to relive the good old days of "Can't Stand Me Now" and "Up the Bracket", get clicking now - any tickets that aren't snapped up will be auto-allocated to the next in line on the register.
