Three shows are axed

Babyshambles have cancelled the last three shows on their UK tour.

Pete Doherty’s band have axed gigs in Norwich, Coventry and at London‘s KOKO this weekend.

Announcing the cancelations, the band issued the following statement:

“Due to a very heavy touring schedule and the constant pressure and continued harassment from outside sources, the band have unfortunately made the decision to cancel the shows this weekend in Norwich (Oct 14), Coventry (15) and London ‘s KOKO (16 Oct).

“The decision has not been taken lightly and the band apologises to their fans for any inconvenience caused, especially to those in Norwich as this gig has already been rescheduled from the October 2 after Peter was held by the police in Shrewsbury (October 1) and was unable to make the journey from Shrewsbury to Norwich in time. Refunds will be available from point of purchase.”

The band meanwhile expect to release their debut album ‘Down In Albion’ on November 14
