Pete Plays Secret Gig
Doherty and Babyshambles are in Glasgow for a tiny MTV2 show
Pete Doherty has hit Scotland in style with a very special secret gig for MTV Twos Gonzo Tour. The notorious frontman and Babyshambles played their smallest show in years at the Glasgow Barfly running through much of their new album Shotters Nation.
Doherty was not announced as the headliner for the final Gonzo 5th Birthday Tour gig - though many fans seemed to know the band were in town. Looking healthier than ever the frontman wrecked the stage at the end of the set, the group also sounded better than during previous shambolic shows. The four-piece played a 45-minute starting with Delivery- their current single- and fitting in old favourites like Kilamanjaro and a raucous F*ck Forever.
Before being interviewed by Zane Lowe Babyshambles typically caused problems by becoming locked on their bus. Luckily Pete- sporting new red hair- and the gang escaped to play a mental show to the 200 baying punters.
Earlier Joe Lean And The Jing Jang Jong supported along with superb pop-punks Operator Please. We Are Scientists were the original headliners for the Scotland show but pulled out late on.
