Babyshambles reschedule Ibiza gig
Babyshambles have set the date for their rescheduled Ibiza Rocks appearance for August 14.
The band, as previously reported, was forced to pull out of their planned show on July 19 to allow Pete Doherty to check into a drugs rehabilitation clinic following a recent relapse into heroin addiction. However Pete appears ardent to return to the notorious party isle saying in a statement: “We are keen fierce to come back to Ibiza and showcase all our new songs”And promoters are happy to have them. “We were all really looking forward to welcoming Babyshambles back to the island this year for Ibiza Rocks,” they say in a statement, “but, at the end of the day, we love and support Pete and it's his health and happiness that are important".Pete says of the Sony Ericsson-sponsored event: “Ibiza Rocks is a noble and praise worthy mission and I can't wait to get back in that Manumission villa!"
