Pete Doherty kicked-off his UK tour on Saturday night (19.09.09).
The former Babyshambles and Libertines frontman wowed his army of loyal fans as he performed a two-hour set at The Roundhouse in Camden, North London.
His playlist mainly consisted of tracks from his solo album 'Grace/Wastelands' but also included some huge crowd pleasers including 'For Lovers', 'Delivery' and Libertines numbers 'Don't Look Back Into The Sun' and 'Time For Heroes'.
Dressed in his trademark hat and jacket Pete, who has previously not turned up for shows, looked to have put his personal problems behind him and looked every inch the star.
Following his well-received set, Pete came back for an encore, which included a cover of The Specials' hit 'Message To You'.
He continued his small tour with a concert in Lemington Spa last night (20.09.09) and he will play Manchester Apollo tonight (21.09.09) and finish in Glasgow Barrowlands on Wednesday (23.09.09). says:

Carl Barat and Adam Green played a joint gig together in Paris on Friday night (September 18), in a show that featured the two collaborating on each other's material and Barat debuting new songs.The duo played Paris' Centre Pompidou and were backed by Green's band and a string section. Watch fan recorded video footage of the gig below. As well as collaborating on The Libertines' 'What A Waster' and Green's 'Friends Of Mine', Barat played several new solo songs, with titles including 'So Long My Lover' and 'We Are All Heroes'. Both Green and Barat were in a relaxed mod during the gig, with the former fooling around with a roll of gaffer tape throughout, before finally breaking his guitar with a mic stand.
