Pete Doherty failed to turn up for a court appearance in London this morning (April 12).

The Babyshambles singer was delayed for a review of his 12-month community order at Thames Magistrates Court in east London following the band's first European gig of 2006 in France last night.

The court heard that he was stuck in Paris at the time of the hearing, reports the BBC.

His case has been adjourned until May 12.

The band are due to continue their European tour at Dublin Temple Music Bar Centre tomorrow (April 13).

The remaining dates are:

Belfast Spring And Airbrake (14)
Derry Nerve Centre (15)
Cork Savoy (16)
Carlow Music Factory (17)
Wolverhampton Civic Hall (25)
Plymouth Pavilions (26)
Amsterdam Paradiso (May 1)
Brussels Les Nuits Botanique Festival (2)
Copenhagen Vega (5)
Arhus Train (6)
Cologne Buergerhaus Stollwerck (10)
Berlin Kesselhaus (11)
Hamburg Gruenspan (12)
Bologna New Estragon (26)
Rome Qube (27)

Last month, the singer was praised by the judge in the same court for his progress over the year-long programme, which requires Doherty to undergo regular drug tests.

He will appear on separate drugs charges on April 20.
