The band tear through a highly-charged set at London's Neighbourhood...
Libertines played a triumphant set at ROUGH TRADE’s 25th Anniversary show last night (October 15) – the latest in a string of gigs since guitarist PETE DOHERTY’s release from prison last week.
Kicking off with ‘Horrorshow’, the band, watched by their actress pal Sadie Frost, tore through a highly charged set at London’s Neighbourhood which included ‘Up The Bracket’, ‘Death On The Stairs’, ‘What A Waster’ and their latest single ‘Don’t Look Back Into The Sun’.
Also performing were The Fiery Furnaces, Adam Green and The Hidden Cameras with whom ex-Suede member Bernard Butler guested on guitar.
As previously reported, Pete became a free man last Wednesday (October 8) after serving one month in jail after pleading guilty to burglary after breaking into bandmate Carl Barat’s flat (July 25), while [a][/a] were touring in Japan.
Later that night, Pete was joined on stage by the rest of the band, Carl included, at the Tap N’ Tin club in Chatham, Kent. Only 200 lucky fans were at the gig. The band’s mate Rabbi joined them for versions of ‘Sally Brown’ and ‘Dirty Old Town’.
For the full story on how Pete and Carl got back together, including an exclusive interview with the two of them and pictures, see this week’s NME, which is out now nationwide.
