Pete Doherty’s home gig angers landlordAugust 31st, 2008 - 1:01 pm ICT by IANS
London, Aug 31 (IANS) British singer Pete Doherty’s plans to stage a Babyshambles show at his home have angered his landlord, who is determined to stop the concert.Contactmusic.com reports that Doherty’s band was booked to play at Moonfest in Wiltshire, but local police put a stop to the appearance fearing thousands of youngsters will turn up and cause mayhem.
The rocker, who was hell bent on doing the show, then offered to stage it at his home in nearby Marlborough instead.
But now the Earl of Cardigan, who owns Doherty’s country mansion, says he will not allow the band to play on his property.
In an email to local police, Lord Cardigan wrote: “Please advise your colleagues that ‘Pete’s house’ is actually Sturmy House. That house is the property of the trustees of Savernake Estate and any such thing would certainly constitute a breach of his lease of our property.
“So, should Doherty’s manager ever plan to carry out his threat, please be advised in advance that there are absolutely no circumstances in which the owners of that house where Doherty lives would ever sanction such a thing.”
