At the end of last month (September 26-28), The Libertines stormed London’s Alexandra Palace with three exhilarating headline shows that proved without doubt that the likely lads could still cut the mustard.
Their choice of support bands were impressively on point too. Friday saw Peace take to the stage towing new material from their forthcoming second album. Saturday saw fellow Birmingham boys Swim Deep take up the torch, while Liverpool newcomers and NME Tour graduates Circa Waves tore it up on Sunday.
Backstage, the vibes were high as well. So much so, in fact, that The Libs and the Circas found time to scrawl their marks all over the walls.
Here are some exclusive, candid shots of the boys in the band(s), backstage.
