One Year On: The Libertines at the Parr Hall

It’s been a whole year since The Libertines took to the stage at the Parr Hall. The night was an unexpected pleasure for the thousand in attendance as the band were due to play in Blackpoolas part of their ‘Tiddeley Om Pom Pom Tour’ but had to postpone following urgent repair work required on the venue.

The Libertines took to the Parr Hall stage after tickets were snapped up within four minutes of going on sale the Friday before.

As it came to gig day the crowds were building up early, keen to get a view close to the stage for the band fronted by Pete Doherty and Carl Barât. Line up on the night was:

Doors 7pm

Bright Young People – 7.30pm
Magic Mod – 8.45pm
Trampolene – 8.30pm
Libertines – 9.30pm

Set List was:

Time for Heroes
Bangkok
Tomblands
The Delaney
Barbarians
Heart of the Matter
Boys in the Band
You’re My Waterloo
Campaign of Hate
Horrorshow
Gunga Din
Can’t Stand Me Now
The Saga
Death on the Stairs
Fame and Fortune
Vertigo
What Katie Did
Tell the King
The Good Old Days

Encore:
Anthem for Doomed Youth (Acoustic)
Music When the Lights Go Out
Up the Bracket
What A Waster
Don’t Look Back Into the Sun
I Wanna Be Adored (The Stone Roses cover)

Safe to say the reaction was emphatic on Twitter.

BODIES surge towards the stage and become a mass of limbs, pint after pint of £4 lager is hurled through the air, and just for a moment the Libertines are transported back in time 15 years.
