Pete Doherty signs up for just £100
Babyshambles are the latest band to be confirmed for this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
Organiser Michael Eavis confirmed that his daughter – and fellow organiser – Emily had booked Pete Doherty’s band for a surprisingly cheap fee.
“I don’t know if we’re allowed to say this, but Emily has just done deal we’re really proud of for Pete Doherty and Babyshambles, for £100!” Michael told NME.COM. “I must say I’ve never got a band for £100! I can’t believe it, she’s doing very well, isn’t she? Absolute classic!”
Emily later cleared up the deal’s details, explaining that while Babyshambles will be receiving a usual fee, the £100 is to get Doherty to do an extra acoustic performance.
