The Benicassim adventure

In spite of fires, storms and a few cancelled sets, Babyshambles managed to play at the Festival Internacional de Benicassim in Spain last night. writes: "The Killers, Babyshambles, Friendly Fires, White Lies and TV On The Radio were among the acts to play on the final day of the Benicassim festival 2009 last night (July 19) and into the early hours of this morning (20). [...] Babyshambles played on the Escenario stage. The show had been billed as a Pete Doherty solo show, but it was the full band who emerged on stage. The four-some – augmented by a keyboard player – played both their own hits plus The Libertines' 'What Katy Did' and near set-closer 'Time For Heroes', while Doherty played The Libertines' 'Music When The Lights Go Out' acoustically solo. They also played a shortened version of The Stone Roses' 'I Wanna Be Adored', with the frontman donning a horse mask thrown on stage by a fan between two songs. Babyshambles ended with 'Fuck Forever' after Doherty had acknowledged the British fans in the crowd. "Your English is pretty good," he joked. "If I didn’t know you better…"."

This curious video shows the Shambles climbing on the stage.
