The performance was good, the band moved through the set with fluency and performed a majority of songs from their new album "Shotters Nation" with many of the more famous tracks from "Down in Albion".

Sound: Now that Amy Winehouse is the paper's favourite drug addict and the media storm has died down around Pete Doherty he can get back what he does best. The concert in London's Wembley arena was no disapointment. The fans were loyal and the performance good. Babyshambles sound was good. Pete used his guitar that he uses in the "Can't Stand Me Now" that looks exactly the same as one you would use when playing "Guitar Hero". Wolfman used a Rickenbacker with a natural finish and Drew Mconell used a Fender Precision bass. // 8

Perfomance: The stage was decorated with the band's "Albion" (Old England) theme. The stage was littered with old lamps, coat stands, tattered flags and ironically adverts for cigarettes and alcohol. The performance was good, the band moved through the set with fluency and performed a majority of songs from their new album "Shotters Nation" with many of the more famous tracks from "Down in Albion". Standout out tracks from the the new album were "Delivery", "You Talk", "Boogies" however the crowd preferred older tracks such as "Pipedown", "Killamgiro" and the final track "F--k Forever". // 8

Overall Impression: Wembley Arena was a great arena for Babyshambles. The thing that surprised me the most was the variety of people. I thought the crowd would comprise mainly of Indie kids with skinny jeans and bad haircuts however I was surprised by the range of people that were present. There was Indie kids yes but there was also goths, punks and half the population of essex. The support acts were Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong. They were quite good but played their best song first so it was boring after that but despite sound problems they still sounded good. The other support act was Dizzee Rascal he kept the crowd entertained and made it a party. When Babyshambles came on the the crowd new all the words and the whole concert experience was good. // 8
