Babyshambles At Brixton Academy

Sorry for the lack of updates...I've been on vacation and its been a bit hard to get to the computer and update the blog. On Sunday, February 18th Babyshambles (actually) played a fucking phenomenal show at Brixton Academy for the NME Shockwave Awards.

The show started out a bit late as Pete showed up to the venue right as the band was supposed to go on. There was a bit of a scare that the show was going to end quickly with Pete walking off stage after 2 songs due to the crowd getting a bit rowdy.

The show continued as the band played a set of Babyshambles hits, complete with Kate Moss coming on stage for her part on "La Belle Et La Bête" (with a very nice ensemble of course) and also playing a song "they've never played before", Wolfman came on stage and performed "For Lovers".

Of course, no Babyshambles show would be complete without a couple of old school Libertines tunes...which they definitely played. Doing "Time For Heroes" the crowd went NUTS!

Fuck Forever could have been the best track of the night with the crowd screaming along the whole time.

I never ever thought I'd see Babyshambles but thank god I was worth the wait.
