Pete is reunited with his band at a tiny gig in Kent...
Libertines sensationally reformed on stage last night – the day PETE DOHERTY was released from prison (October 8).
Yesterday morning Pete became a free man after serving one month in jail after pleading guilty to burglary after breaking into bandmate Carl Barat’s flat (July 25), while Libertines were touring in Japan.
Last 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’.
Is was the band’s first show since Pete failed to turn up for a European tour in May. Until yesterday, Pete and Carl hadn’t seen each other since before the court case.
One fan at the gig told NME.COM: “This is the greatest night of my life. They’re together. They’re happy. The best band in Britain are back! I hope that they can sort out their differences now and get their single to number one. Go Pete, Carl, Gary and John!”
The band played: ‘Seven Deadly Sins’
‘Death On The Stairs’
‘Time For Heroes’
‘The Boy Looked At Johnny’
‘Don’t Look Back Into The Sun’
‘Dirty Old Town’
‘Boys In The Band’
‘Good Old Days’
‘I Get Along’
‘What A Waster’
‘What Katy Did’
‘Up The Bracket’
