Pete Doherty is set to perform at an elite French Royal Ball later this week.

The Babyshambles singer confirmed to NME that he had been booked to play the £750-a-ticket Rose Ball in Monaco on Saturday (March 24) following tabloid reports this morning.

Miles Kane, Mark Ronson and Imelda May are also on the bill, while guests are slated to include Roger Moore, Karl Lagerfeld and Prince Albert of Monaco.

Doherty, who is currently thought to be working on new material, will also play a one-off London show next month, headlining the Brixton Jamm venue in south London for an intimate acoustic gig on April 6.

The singer played his first live shows of 2012 at the same venue in January of this year, when he played two sets and showcased a handful of new tracks.

The singer's former bandmate 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 to the bottom of the page and click to watch the video interview.
