Hit singles 'Killamangiro' and 'Fuck Forever' sparked riotous scenes amongst fans, whilst Doherty dedicated the aforementioned 'Unstookietitled' to black civil rights activist Marcus Garvey.

'Albion' was later dedicated to the memory of Daniel Squires, a 16 year-old fan who Doherty befriended and played at the wake of after his death from bone marrow cancer.

"He's sadly no longer with us," Doherty said.The song's lyrics were changed in customary fashion, with mentions of Sheffield and Wakefield reflecting the gig's Yorkshire setting.

Doherty jumped into the photopit at the close of the song to collect hats from fans, which he then proceeded to pile on his head.
