The Libertines played their first concert in six years last Wednesday and fans were out in force to see the much anticipated performance.
Eager fans flocked to the sell out show at the Kentish Town Forum in north London where the indie rockers opened with Vera Lynn’s wartime classic “We’ll meet Again.”
The band collapsed in 2004 after front man Pete Doherty’s public battle with drugs, coupled with his turbulent relationship with fellow band mate Carl Barât. No signs of on stage tension were visible between the band during the one hour and twenty minute set.
The foursome embraced at the end of the performance in front of lively crowd of cheering fans. The concert was a warm-up before the band play both Reading and Leeds festivals in the coming weeks. Initial reports from Doherty hinted that the band had been offered millions of pounds to reform.
Where does the term “the luck of the Irish” come from?
