Libertines post Reading And Leeds Festivals rehearsal footage online – video

'Horrorshow' rehearsal footage appears on Pete Doherty's YouTube account

Pete Doherty has posted video footage online of The Libertines rehearsing for their upcoming reunion gigs.

Watch footage of the band playing ‘Horrorshow’ by scrolling down now.

The YouTube video comes on the day that Libertines fans are due to find out whether they were successful in the ballot to buy tickets for the band’s gig at London’s HMV Forum next Wednesday (August 25).


In the video, which appears to have been shot from a laptop, the four-piece are seen crowding in front of the camera before Doherty says: “Alright, it’s recording so let’s go straight into one.”

The band then play the opening of ‘Horrorshow’, though the footage is spliced between images of them playing it last Monday (August 9) and a vintage performance of the same song from the band’s December 18, 2002 Christmas party gig at London‘s Rhythm Factory.

At one point in the video, Doherty also appears playing a section of the track solo on an acoustic guitar.

Following their show at the HMV Forum, The Libertines are set to play Reading And Leeds Festivals on August 27-29.
