Courtney Love declared that she was "not so bad for an old lady" as her band Hole performed their first UK gig for 11 years.

The 45-year-old rock chick took to the stage at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in London wearing a headband over her blonde locks and dishevelled prom dress, and delighted fans with a mixture of classics and new material.

The band also performed a cover of the Rolling Stones hit Sympathy For The Devil, with Courtney telling the crowd: "You can just call me Lucifer."

The group sent the audience wild with rocking performances of their biggest hits including Celebrity Skin and Malibu, but also impressed with new material from their new album Nobody's Daughter, which is due for release in April.

New tracks included Skinny Little B***h, Letter To God and Honey, but Courtney seemed to struggle through the Pacific Coast Highway, complaining: "My fingers are bleeding now."
