Doherty is joined onstage by Babyshambles bandmates Drew McConnell and Adam Falkner
Pete Doherty played a double set during a comeback show at London’s Brixton Jamm last night (February 22).
The singer, who has just returned from Thailand where he completed a treatment programme in rehab, kicked off the show with his latest song ‘Flags Of The Old Regime’ – a tribute to the late Amy Winehouse.
He was then joined onstage by his Babyshambles bandmates, including guitarist Drew McConnell and drummer Adam Falkner, as well as a violinist. They played Babyshambles songs including ‘The 32nd Of December’, ‘La Belle et la Bete’, ‘Sedative’ and ‘Nothing Comes To Nothing’.
Doherty also played a host of Libertines material, including ‘Death On The Stairs’ and ‘Don’t Look Back Into The Sun’, during which he launched himself into the audience and crowdsurfed.
Doherty will play a second night at Brixton Jamm tonight. In a message sent to NME to announce the gigs, Doherty previously said: “It’s been a long old Bangkok’s half hour……but now the Lad ‘imself is heading Brixton sides to stone the crows awhile…….doo dah diddly!”
Doherty unveiled the video for ‘Flags Of The Old Regime’ last week. The single will be released on March 9 via Walk Tall Recordings, and all proceeds go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which aims to give young people a better understanding of drug and alcohol misuse.
Doherty is also working on a new Libertines album with Carl Barât. Late last year it was confirmed to NME that the Libertines will be recording their first album in 11 years at Karma Studios in Thailand. The band released a short video in December that showed them signing a record deal with Virgin/EMI in Thailand in lieu of the release.
