Last month The Pogues frontman had joined The Libertines onstage in Dublin, during the band’s show at the 3 Arena. Before the encore, McGowan took to the stage to declare his love for the band and later joined them again for a group hug.

But singer Peter Doherty wasn't too sure that the 57 year old was enjoying himself during the show. Earlier in the set Doherty had told the crowd, "I was so thrilled to hear earlier in the day that Shane MacGowan was coming down to watch us, but I just looked over at him and he looked to have fallen asleep. Shane MacGowan came to see The Libertines and fell asleep!"
