From Swindon Advertiser:
Pete Doherty to perform in Cricklade pub
10:00am Wednesday 11th November 2009

ROCK wildman Pete Doherty is set to perform in Cricklade tonight.
The Babyshambles frontman is due to appear with his entire band at the Vale Hotel in Cricklade High Street.
The band will be supported by Fred Hot Chilli Peppers
Vale Hotel owner Mark Ingle said: “It is the biggest thing to hit Cricklade. It is fantastic and incredible to get such a celebrity.
“Pete is a very talented guy and I have a lot of time for him. I can’t wait.
“The support from the Cricklade community has been great. A guy rang from London and wanted to buy 100 tickets. But it is first come first served.”
Gig organiser Robert Baker arranged the performance in 48 hours. He said: “I think it will be mostly local people from Cricklade and Swindon there. It will be a chilled out affair with some good music. Babyshambles gigs happen quite often at the last minute in London.”
Mr Baker said Babyshambles is expected to perform new tracks from an upcoming album next year as well as old classics.
Doors open at 7.30pm and entry is £15.
