Peter closes RF residency

Peter: Any of you here on Thursday?
Few people in crowd: Errr, yeah.
Peter (fiddling with his hat and looking a bit sheepish): Errr, yeah. Sorry about that.

Pete Doherty ended his London residency at Whitechapel's Rhythm Factory last night (January 10) by playing a set taking in some of his rarest and best-loved songs. The gig was Doherty's third in three nights at the venue. Although previously he had been joined by his Babyshambles bandmates for the gigs, last night Doherty took to the stage on his own, playing an acoustic set of songs that stretched back to his pre-Rough Trade Libertines days.Kicking off shortly before 1am (GMT) with Libertines favourite 'Music When The Lights Go Out', Doherty played a varied set that included a cover of Oasis' 'Hello', much to the crowd's delight. While the biggest cheers were saved for Babyshambles' 'Fuck Forever' and The Libertines' 'Up The Bracket', 'Time For Heroes' and 'Campaign Of Hate', Doherty looked most content playing 'Snakey Road' and 'Love Reign O'er Me' – both of which are rumoured to feature on his forthcoming solo album.
The singer, who defied the smoking ban by puffing on cigarettes throughout the set, kept the between-song banter to a minimum. He did, however, thank the night's support acts before launching into final song, a rapturously received 'What Katy Did'.
Babyshambles are now set to play a one-off gig with The Who's Roger Daltrey at Bristol's O2 Academy on Monday (January 12).
Pete Doherty played: 'Music When The Lights Go Out''Lust Of The Libertines', 'Campaign Of Hate', 'Lost Art Of Murder', 'Hello', 'Snakey Road', 'What A Waster', 'Love Reign O'er Me', 'Fuck Forever', 'Time For Heroes', 'Up The Bracket', 'Merry-Go-Round', 'Side Of The Road', 'Dilly Boys', 'Never Never', 'What Katy Did'.
