CONTROVERSIAL former Libertines and Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty is set to play the King George’s Hall in Blackburn.

The notorious singer/guitarist will be appearing at the venue on Thursday, August 25th just a day before he headlines the Festival Republic Stage at Leeds Festival.

Never far from the front pages of Britian’s tabloids nobody can deny Doherty a back catalogue featuring an impressive array of hits spanning his time with the Libertines and Babyshambles as well as his solo projects.

Firm favourites “Don’t Look Back Into The Sun”, “Albion” and “Can’t Stand Me Now” usually appear on a setlist which fans of any of his work are almost certain to enjoy.

Tickets for the gig are £19.50 and are available from the venue and www.gigticketsonline.com.
