Pete Doherty injury causes London solo show cancellations

Crocked star pulls plug on three night run

Pete Doherty has pulled out of three nights of solo shows at London‘s Rhythm Factory.

A spokesperson for the venue told NME.COM that Doherty called staff at the venue late last night (December 20), “at the 11th hour – just before he was due on”, to say he wouldn’t make it.

The Babyshambles man blamed an arm injury as the cause of the cancellation.

He had been due to play at the venue last night, tonight (21) and tomorrow (22). Last night’s show was due to be filmed for a DVD to be released with his forthcoming new album.

The trio of dates have been rescheduled for January 8, 9 and 10. Tickets for the December dates remain valid for January. For further information, see
