The View cover Oasis live with Babyshambles

The View's Kyle Falconer played a surprise acoustic show in support of Babyshambles at the Brixton Mass venue last night (June 18).

Taking the stage at 10:30pm (BST), after being introduced by Babyshambles bassist Drew McConnell, Falconer played an eight-song acoustic set which included an Oasis cover, a new song and hits 'Same Jeans' and 'Superstar Tradesman'.

As well as the aforementioned two songs Falconer played 'Wasted Little DJs', 'Skag Trendy' and a cover of Oasis 'Don’t Look Back In Anger'.

Later on in the evening Babyshambles took the stage and played a 14-song set including two new songs, 'Ocean' and 'Heart Of The Matter'.

Pete Doherty, wearing a suit and necklace, led his band on stage at 11:20pm and opened the set with b-side ’The Man Who Came To Stay’, which he declared the band "haven’t played in three years".

The band then played the moody and melodic new song 'Ocean', then later gave 'French Dog Blues' a rare live airing.

The crowd seemed impressed by Babyshambles' form, with many attendees commenting on the band’s tight-ness and sense of urgency.

The band kept banter to a minimum, and covered 'Janie Jones' by The Clash later in the set then played 'Sedative' before heading off for a cigarette break.

After the break Babyshambles played an amped-up closing set including 'Delivery', 'Pipedown' and 'Fuck Forever', which they closed the show with.

'The Man Who Came To Stay'
'Heart Of The Matter'
'French Dog Blues'
'La Belle Et La Bette'
