Subways threatening to ‘throw a pint of beer over Pete Doherty’

Billy Lunn is targeting singer at Reading And Leeds Festivals

The SubwaysBilly Lunn has launched a verbal attack on Pete Doherty, saying he can’t understand why the Babyshambles frontman continually lets down his fans by missing gigs.

Speaking to Rock Sound, Lunn was asked if he would be confronting anyone at this weekend’s Reading And Leeds Festivals (August 22-24).

“I don’t think there is anyone I want to negatively accost at the festival,” he said, before changing his mind. “I suppose I would throw a pint of beer over Pete Doherty if he is there. ‘If’ being the word as we just played an Austrian festival and Babyshambles were meant to be playing two bands after us, and guess what, he didn’t turn up.”

Lunn also said he wants to “ask him [Doherty] what he thinks he is doing.”

The Subways play the Main Stage at Reading on Saturday (August 23) and Leeds on Sunday (24).
