The Sunday Mirror reports Pete Doherty was so desperate to patch things up with his old Libertines bandmates that he turned up at Reading uninvited in the hope of a dramatic stage reunion, only to discover he was banned from the backstage area on the orders of the group’s management. “Pete knows that if Carl sees him in the flesh and he’s not off his face he’ll be back on stage with them where he should be,” an insider said, referring to the band’s frontman Carl Barat. “There is a strong bond between them, despite what’s happened. But Libertines bosses will do whatever they can to stop that from happening. That’s why they told the festival organizers that Pete can only be allowed to mix with the ordinary punters in the mud.”
