NME.COM is there to see Carl and Pete play a set at a bandstand and then a small island...

Libertines performed an exclusive gig yesterday (October 13) in the middle of LONDON’s REGENT’S PARK, NME.COM can reveal.

After playing a set at the bandstand which included ‘We’ll Meet Again’, ‘Death on the Stairs’, ‘Up The Bracket’ and ‘What A Waster’, Pete Doherty and Carl Barat headed off to hire boats for an afternoon of boating on the lake.

The guitarists then rowed out to the middle of the lake where they disembarked on a small island for another set included the recent single ‘Don’t Look Back Into The Sun’.

The performance is latest in a string of performances since Libertines dramatically reformed last week (October 8) following Doherty’s release from Wandsworth Prison earlier that day.

As previously reported, Pete became a free man on Wednesday after serving one month in jail after pleading guilty to burglary after breaking into Barat’s flat (July 25), while Libertines 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’.

It was the band’s first show since Pete failed to turn up for a European tour in May. Until Wednesday, Pete and Carl hadn’t seen each other since before the court case.
