Pete Doherty and Babyshambles play gig in London flat

Fans sing along at Whitechapel show

Pete Doherty played a gig last night (October 27) with his Babyshambles bandmates Adam Ficek and Mick Whitnall at a flat in east London.

See fan footage of the gig by clicking on the video below.

The Whitechapel gig was advertised on internet forums, with fans paying £20 through a cage door at the front of the private flat to gain entry. Doherty played at one end of the sparse main room, with a makeshift bar set up at the other.

The singer/guitarist began playing at about 9pm (BST). Ficek, who performs under the alias Roses, Kings, Castles, also performed solo songs during the show.

Fans sang along and joined in the show throughout, until around 10:45pm (GMT) when, while performing a cover of the rock standard once covered by The Beatles, ‘Twist And Shout’, Doherty tore through the crowd to the backstage area.

Whitnall and Ficek played Babyshambles‘I Wish’ to end the show.
