THE LIBERTINES star Pete Doherty last night (28APR04) returned to the scene of his riotous performance in Stoke-On-Trent, England last week (21APR04) to play another chaotic gig.

Doherty and his Libertines bandmate Carl Barat performed at THE UNDERGROUND last week when crowds caused thousands of dollars worth of damage to the venue, before police arrived to disperse fans who were watching the pair perform acoustic sets in the car park.

The singer-songwriter returned last night to play with his Babyshambles side-project, and increased security saw the night pass without the same riotous incident - although fans invaded the stage at one point, before Doherty dived into the crowd.

He told the crowd, "We don't leave London much... but when we do we come to Stoke!"
