Pete Doherty’s solo show at Rough Trade East cancelled

The Libertines and Babyshambles man was due to play an acoustic gig this evening (December 5)

Pete Doherty‘s tiny and intimate in-store show at London’s Rough Trade East store tonight (December 5) has been cancelled.

The label took to Twitter to offer their apologies and said: “Due to delays en route, unfortunately @petedoherty in-store at @RoughTrade tonight has been cancelled. Sincerest apologies to all…”

A further tweet also stated: “For those purchased album/wristbands, you’re entitled to a refund, but we’re working on a re-scheduled date and will update tomorrow (December 6).”


Last week, The Libertines and Babyshambles man released his second solo album, ‘Hamburg Demonstrations’.

After playing an emotional show to re-open The Bataclan following the Paris terror attacks recently, he also has a series of solo shows lined up, including:

London, O2 Forum (December 6)
Manchester, Albert Hall (December 7)

Meanwhile, bandmate Carl Barat recently gave NME an exclusive update on The Libertines’ new album.


“We’re looking to bed in together,” Barat told NME. “We want to get our own place, which is a bit of a long and convoluted project. There’s a lot of planning and maybes which I can’t say too much about, but we’re looking at getting our own factory.”

He joked: “If we don’t have something by next year, then my name’s not Donald Clinton.”

Asked if their fourth album will have a ‘classic Libs’ sound, Barat said: “I guess so. That’s a nice way of looking at it. We’ll just be rolling up our sleeves and the hard work will pay off. Arbeit macht frei.”

The tracklist for ‘Hamburg Demonstrations’ is:

‘Kolly Kibber’
‘Down For The Outing’
‘Hell To Pay At The Gates Of Heaven’
‘Flags From The Old Regime’
‘I Don’t Love Anyone (But You’re Not Just Anyone) V2’
‘A Spy In The House Of Love’
‘Oily Boker’
‘I Don’t Love Anyone (But You’re Not Just Anyone)’
‘The Whole World Is Our Playground’
‘She is Far’
