The Liverpool gig seems to be on

From Liverpool Confidential:

"MISUNDERSTOOD [????] popstar Pete Doherty apparently often nips up to Liverpool on the QT, and on Friday he's here once more. And quite a few people know about it, but only just.
Yes, he really is coming, he will turn up, say the organisers of the party to launch Studio in Hardman Street who are rapidly selling out of £22 tickets for the event.
Pete is no stranger to headlines, in fact he made them earlier this week when his boat capsized at Loch Lomond while he was trying to get into the VIP enclosure of the festival there.
On Friday he makes a headline of a different sort, topping the bill playing an acoustic set at the former Jaxx and Hardman House Hotel.
Liverpool Confidential got a sneak walk-around the new-look Studio the other day and it looks the part for anyone planning one of those lost nights out with a Space room and a VIP lounge (which Pete won't have to get in a boat to get into) plus bars and mirror balls galore.
The plan is to have one major act a month on, and it all kick starts this weekend with Howie Payne (brother of Candie and The Zutons' drummer Sean) providing a very laudible support".
