Celebs out in force for London pub show
Babyshambles played a surprise show at north London’s Boogaloo Bar on Sunday night (August 13).
Looking relaxed, Pete Doherty led the band onstage at midnight to a packed crowd including actress Sadie Frost and members of Hope Of The States.
Starting with a duet with Kate Moss on ‘La Belle Et La Bete’, the band ripped through a set of Babyshambles and Libertines classics before being joined by Shane MacGowan for a version of Ewan MacColl‘s ‘Dirty Old Town’, which was covered by MacGowan‘s band The Pogues in 1985.
After a 20-minute hiatus the band returned to the stage for an impromptu second set, where they were joined by Doherty’s pal The General for a version of ‘Pentonville’ and a rousing acoustic version of ‘Albion’, until the band finally left the stage at 1am.
