Babyshambles man commits cardinal sin at Liverpool gig
Pete Doherty played a surprise gig in Liverpool last Friday ( August 8) – but upset much of the crowd after a choosing controversial setlist.
Playing at The Studio – an Everton venue – Doherty launched into a version of Liverpool‘s anthem ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.
But despite the crowd erupting into a chorus of boos and even throwing drinks at the singer, Doherty, a fan of London club Queens Park Rangers, still persevered and performed the song – from the musical ‘Carousel’ and later made popular in Liverpool by
Gerry And The Pacemakers – it in its entirety.
Doherty also took the opportunity to play The Libertines‘ ‘Breck Road Lover’, a song that takes its name from an area of Liverpool where the singer spent some of his childhood.
Support on the night came from former Stands frontman turned solo artist Howie Payne, and Ali Love.
