Babyshambles have postponed their UK tour to give singer Pete Doherty more time to recover from drug treatment, their record company has said.
The postponed dates will be rescheduled
The band have postponed their five remaining dates to allow him to continue his "excellent" rehab efforts.
Saturday's concert in Liverpool has been cancelled, along with scheduled performances in Glasgow, Nottingham, Manchester and Newcastle.
Doherty has been receiving treatment at a London clinic for his addiction.
An EMI spokesman said: "Babyshambles have made the decision to postpone the remaining five dates of their current UK tour.
"It has become clear that Peter embarked on this arduous and high profile tour too soon after his discharge and still needs time to recover from his extensive rehab treatment.
"Peter asks that he be given the time and space to continue with his excellent effort to recover.
"The band apologises to fans but hope that they will understand the importance of Peter being able to best continue his good progress in recovering from addiction.
"The dates will be rearranged for as soon as possible and all tickets will remain valid."
Last month Doherty appeared in court on drugs charges, where the judge said she was "impressed" with his attempts to beat his addiction.
The singer had pleaded guilty to five counts on possessing heroin, cocaine and cannabis.
He was allowed to continue his drug treatment and told he would be sentenced on 4 December.
