Babyshambles launch fashion line with lunch time show
Babyshambles played a lunchtime gig in the car park of London department store Selfridges today (December 7).
Kicking off at 1.50, Pete Doherty and his band played a four-song set to mark the launch of Manchester fashion label Gio-Goi new range, which was inspired by the singer.
With fans urged to get to the seventh floor car park for “12.30pm sharp”, some feared the singer would not make the show, and a significant minority drifted off during the long wait.
However when he did finally take the stage Doherty made fun of his reputation asking the crowd “Where have you been?, I’ve been in the stationary department on my own for the last hour-and-a half.”
Despite then promising the crowd a three-song set, Babyshambles then powered through four tracks for the assembled fans.
Babyshambles are now set to play a full gig at the Hammersmith Apollo tonight.
