Fans invade stage at Pete Doherty Royal Albert Hall show

Watch footage of the mobbing on NME.COM now

Pete Doherty played a solo show at the London Royal Albert Hall on Saturday night (July 12). The set ended with hundreds of fans storming the stage to mob the Babyshambles frontman.

The gig had been rescheduled from its original date, April 26, but was put back after Doherty was incarcerated in London‘s Wormwood Scrubs prison for breaching probation rules.

During the sold-out gig Doherty played a series of songs from both his Libertines and Babyshambles back catalogues. At one point he got out a pair of binoculars and peered at fans at the back of the large venue.


The singer/guitarist was joined by musical collaborator Wolfman for ‘For Lovers’, the pair’s 2004 hit single. Babyshambles guitarist Mick Whitnall arrived on stage to play harmonica on ‘Albion’ and ‘I Wish’ before the aforementioned stage invasion, video footage of which you can see below.

The gig ended with Doherty being mobbed, before security guards intervened and helped him get backstage.
