Taking to the stage at 2am, after sets from The Blood Arm and Belgian electro rockers Goose, the band played a selection of tracks from their debut album ‘Waterloo To Anywhere’, including current single ‘Wondering’, alongside several Libertines classics.
The encore saw frontman Carl Barat lead band and audience through a cappella versions of ‘France’ and ‘I Get Along’ by his old band after the guitars they borrowed for the gig were packed away by the stage crew.
The band played:
‘Road To Ruin’
‘Doctors And Dealers’
‘Blood Thirsty Bastards’
