Babyshambles and Libertines man returning to Brixton Jamm next month
Pete Doherty has announced a one-off London show to take place in April.
The Babyshambles and Libertines man will take to the stage at the Brixton Jamm venue in south London for an intimate acoustic gig on April 6, with punters also being granted entry to the show’s official afterparty, which will feature DJs and live music and will run until 3am.

Doherty played his first live shows of 2012 at the same venue in January of this year, when the singer played two sets and showcased a handful of new tracks. His second performance was interrupted by inebriated fans invading the stage, resulting in tussles with security guards.
Meanwhile, Carl Barat has hinted at a Libertines reunion with Doherty, telling NME the pair will “pick up where we left off” in the future – scroll down and click the video player below to view the exclusive NME video interview.
In last week’s NME, it was reported that The Libertines had tentatively agreed to release a ‘lost’ album featuring songs that were recorded before the band signed to Rough Trade in 2001. The tracks are owned by their former drummer, Paul ‘Mr Razzcocks’ Dufour, who said the recordings could be released as “early as June”.
There Are No Innocent Bystanders, NME photographer Roger Sargent’s film about the band’s 2010 reunion shows, is touring six UK venues later this month.
