Doherty was due to appear at the Rhythm Factory last Saturday, 20 December, but cancelled at the last minute after one of the arteries in his arm burst, possibly the result of injecting illegal substances.

The Babyshambles frontman spent time recovering in hospital and has now re-arranged the missing gigs for early January, specifically, the 8, 9 and 10.
