Pete Doherty’s rehab prevents band from playing Brixton gig…

Babyshambles will now not be playing tomorrow night’s (February 10) SHOCKWAVE NME AWARDS SHOW at LONDON CARLING BRIXTON ACADEMY.

Following his release from Pentonville Prison, Pete Doherty has entered rehab and so is unable to take the stage. Refunds are available at the point of purchase for those who now no longer wish to attend.

Kasabian, Goldie Lookin Chain and The Rakes however will be in action, with Kasabian’s Serge Pizzorno promising a special show.

“It’s be nice to play Brixton again,” he told NME.COM “I love those awards shows, you’ve got a short amount of time so you’ve really got to be on it. It’s going to be a good night.”

Tickets for the show are on sale now priced £20. For availability call the NME Ticketline on 0870 1 663 633 or [url=]click here or call the NME Ticketline on 0870 1 663 663.
