Babyshambles announce arena tour
The band recently signed a new deal with Parlophone
Pete Doherty's band Babyshambles are set to play their biggest shows to date with an arena tour later this year.

The UK dates, which include a gig at Wembley Arena, kick off at Manchester MEN Arena on 22 November.

The tour will also take in Newcastle, Brighton, Bournemouth, Birmingham, Nottingham and Glasgow.

Doherty will play two solo shows at London's Hackney Empire next month, which will include poetry, readings and an acoustic set.

Babyshambles recently secured a long-term deal with record label Parlophone.

The move followed the success of the group's The Blinding EP, which was released by the company in December.

Babyshambles previously scored top 10 hits with Killamangiro and Albion on the cult label Rough Trade.
