Babyshambles put off UK dates

The remainder of Babyshambles´ UK trek has been put on ice in order to allow You Know Who to continue with treatment for drug abuse.

A spokesman told “Babyshambles have made the decision to postpone the remaining dates of their current UK tour. It has become clear that Peter (Doherty) embarked on this arduous and high profile tour too soon after his discharge and still needs time to recover from his extensive rehab treatment.”

Tonight´s (9th October) show at Manchester Academy and tomorrow´s at
Newcastle Academy are the last to be affected with tickets remaining valid once all gigs are rescheduled.

Simon Bradley is a guitar and especially rock guitar expert who worked for Total Guitar magazine and has in the past contributed to world-leading music and guitar titles like MusicRadar (obviously), Guitarist, Guitar World and Louder. What he doesn't know about Brian May's playing and, especially, the Red Special, isn't worth knowing.
