The Libertines press on through crowd problems to complete British Summer Time gig


The Libertines were forced to hit the abort button on numerous occasions last night (June 6th) as they made their main return to action at the British Summer Time festival in London.

The Hyde Park event had reportedly suffered with logistical and organisational problems for most of the day by the time The Libertines took to the stage. Crushing at the barrier down front forced the Libertines gig to be twice stopped, while later on in the set festival-goers who decided it would be a good idea to climb the sound rigging for a better view also caused the show to be halted.

The performance itself stuck very close to the pattern of the band’s warm-up concerts in Glasgow last weekend, but there was a very welcome outing for ‘Albion‘ – a track which began life as a widely circulated early Libertines demo but which was officially released by Babyshambles after Pete Doherty had left the group.

The Libertines setlist (NME):

‘Boys In The Band’
‘The Delaney’
‘Campaign Of Hate’
‘Time For Heroes’
‘The Ha Ha Wall’
‘Music When The Lights Go Out’
