Pete Doherty waves goodbye to Thailand with acoustic solo gig

Doherty performs solo material plus Libertines and Babyshambles songs at Club Soma gig

Pete Doherty played his first gig since completing drug rehab in Thailand at a Bangkok club last week.

Doherty performed in front of just 300 fans at Club Soma in the Thai capital on Thursday (February 12). The solo live performance was Doherty’s first since he finished treatment at the Hope Rehabilitation Centre in Thailand earlier this year.

The club show began with Doherty walking through the crowd to the stage wearing an all-black suit and fedora. On the stage was the black and white NME tribute cover released the week of Amy Winehouse’s death in 2011 (see picture).


He began the performance with The Libertines’ ‘Don’t Look Back Into The Sun’, kicking off a set comprised of material by his band Babyshambles songs and and his own solo material ‘La Belle Et La Bete’, ‘Carry On Up The Morning’, ‘For Lovers’ and ‘Beg, Steal Or Borrow’.

“Are you British? Couldn’t believe I have so many Thai fans,” Doherty said prior to playing ‘Music When The Lights Go Out’. A clip of that song can be seen below. The set ended with ‘Albion’ as Doherty made a quick exit before later returning to play Babyshambles’ ‘Fuck Forever’.

‘Don’t Look Back into the Sun’
