Pete Doherty is due to give a lecture to students in Dublin's Trinity College this evening. The Philosophical Society invited the 29-year-old Babyshambles singer to the college. A statement on the society's website said that the singer will talk about: "...life, love and much more". The statement also said that the musician will give: "...a taste of what a rock 'n' roll (hopefully minus the sex and drugs) lifestyle entails." Al Pacino, 68, and Dame Helen Mirren, 63, have previously made speeches at the university. Doherty will be speaking in The Graduates' Memorial Building at 5pm.
For those who are still hoping for a 126 gig tonight (myself included): it's not going to happen. Tonight Peter is appearing on The Late Late Show, which airs live on Irish TV channel RTE One at 9.30 pm. Of course, a youtube rip will be much appreciated.
