The Libertines “in shape” for Rock en Seine 2015 – Le Figaro

The British troublemakers are expected Saturday, August 29 in the Saint-Cloud park to present their new album, eleven years after the previous one. Despite their unpredictability, the founder of the festival remains confident.

If there is a concert not to be missed this weekend at Rock en Seine, it is this one. Eleven years after the release of their latest album, Pete Doherty and the other three British troublemakers Libertines are expected Saturday, August 29 on the main stage of the Saint-Cloud park at 23 pm, to present their new album Anthem for the Doomed Youth . “They returned the Glastonbury Festival [in south-west England] end of June and 4 September released an album. They are happy to meet, and in shape, “says François Missonnier, founder and director of the music festival.

Not sure that’s enough to reassure the public. Nor to trust the unpredictable Pete Doherty. Old junky (he was left out of several tours Libertines because of his crack addiction) and alcohol (remember the 2005 Rock en Seine, which the singer and his group Babyshambles arrived with more an hour late on stage in a highly intoxicated), the musician was also customary last-minute concert cancellations.

Today, thanks to a (new) rehab he followed Thailand last autumn, “Pete goes well,” says his sidekick Libertines Carl Barat. The group’s third album produced by Jake Gosling (also producer of One Direction) also address the tumultuous relationship between the two musicians, which led them to separate in 2004 and to reform themselves in June 2014. At their memorable concert surprise at Glastonbury in June, the quartet had played with great energy of their three new titles: Gunga Din , You’re My Waterloo and Anthem for the Doomed Youth . Will they both Rock en Seine, the only currently scheduled in France? Answer Saturday night.
