The band are to follow up their recent Hyde Park and Glasgow dates with three shows at the end of September.
The Libertines will play Alexandra Palace in North London on 26, 27, 28 September. Tickets are on sale now.
The announcement of the shows came during their headline appearance at Barclaycard British Summer Time in Hyde Park last night (5 July).
Kicking off with Vertigo - the opening track from their debut album, Up The Bracket - the show had to be stopped halfway through the second song, Boys In The Band, after the crowd surged forward and some audience members had to be taken out across the barriers.
The show was stopped again for the same reason three songs later, during Time For Heroes. The set also included a Pete and Carl version of the Babyshambles song Albion, before climaxing with the classic I Get Along.
