Europe In Shambles
Babyshambles has 27 concerts booked across a dozen countries this summer, including a hefty batch of festival dates.
Headlining concerts are planned in France, the U.K. and Ireland this month, with the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and Italy set for May.
The group will be hitting mostly festivals by June, including Germany’s twin Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park events and Sweden’s Hulstfred Festival.
In July, the band is booked for Benicassim in Spain, followed by Belgium’s Pukkelpop, Germany’s Waldbuhne and more in the following months.
The group has been getting more headlines for frontman Pete Doherty’s drug-related antics than for its performances lately, but maybe a road trip will be good for the singer. Then again, European festivals aren’t exactly known for their staid and sober atmosphere.
