Very little information was given about Peter's latest trip to Portugal. Apart from Babybear's blog from yesterday we were totally unsure of what was going on. Apparently the mystery has now been solved. Peter arrived in Porto on Friday, where he had to play at the Queima das Fitas do Porto. Then he decided to stay in town to attend the football match FC Porto - Nacional da Madeira on Sunday. Yesterday he went to Lisbon, where a surprise gig was arranged at the Music Box Club. We've just found two reviews of the gig (in Portuguese), from Disco Digital and Diario, and some beautiful photos by Estacio (here). "Pete Doherty played a flash gig in Lisbon, Portugal" the photographer says "I learned about this gig 30 minutes before and rushed to the venue and asked the bouncer for permission to take some shots".
Although my knowledge of Portuguese is rather poor, I understand both reviews are positive. The setlist is still unknown.
At the moment Peter should have left Portugal and landed in France, where he's expected to attend the Festival du Cannes. "Pete Doherty et Alesha Dixon viendront défendre leurs récents albums" says the famous mag "Paris Match".
