Babyshambles man to revisit the site of a former Libertines reunion for gig

Pete Doherty has been announced as the support act for cockney duo Chas & Dave at a gig this December.

Doherty, who has long admired Chas & Dave, is set to join them at the Tap ‘N’ Tin in Chatham, Kent on December 20.

The Babyshambles frontman is expected to collaborate with Chas & Dave for a couple of songs during his performance.

After he has finished his set, Doherty will be driven to the Rhythm Factory in east London to perform another gig.

The Tap ‘N’ Tin venue was made famous after The Libertines played a reunion gig there in October 2003, the day Doherty was released from prison for breaking into Carl Barat’s flat.

Full ticket details for the Chas & Dave gig are on the Tap ‘N’ Tin‘s MySpace/tapntin.
