The Libertines‘ fans have been having their say on what the band should play at their comeback gigs later this month.
Pete Doherty, Carl Barat and co recently announced details of a show at the HMV Forum in London with the ballot for tickets closing today (August 13) at 6pm (BST). The band will then play the Reading And Leeds Festivals (August 27 and 28).
Since the announcement fans have been plumping for what songs they want the band to play on the NME Office Blog.
So far the 10 most popular songs The Libertines fans would like to see played are:
‘Death On The Stairs’
‘Good Old Days’
‘What A Waster’
‘Up The Bracket’
‘What Katie Did’
‘Can’t Stand Me Now’
‘What Became Of The Likely Lads’
‘Music When the Lights Go Out’
‘Don’t Look Back Into The Sun’
Many fans are also calling for material from the band’s bootleg album ‘Legs XI’, featuring songs unofficially released such as ‘Love On The Dole’.
Barat, meanwhile, has told NME that he wants to open the shows with ‘Horrorshow’ from the band’s debut album, 2002’s ‘Up The Bracket’. Read an interview with him in the new issue of NME, out now, and have your say on the NME Office Blog.
