View To Support Shambles Tour

by | 05 June 2007

Scottish rockers the View will support Babyshambles for two dates during the band's winter arena jaunt.

Pete Doherty and co will be playing at Manchester MEN on November 22nd, Newcastle Metro Radio Arena on the 23rd and the Brighton Centre on the 25th.

They will then play Wembley Arena on November 27th, followed by Birmingham NIA on the 28th and Nottingham on the 30th.

The tour will finish in Glasgow - the scene of many raucous Babyshambles shows - with a gig at the SECC on December 1st.

The View will support the band at Birmingham and Nottingham, treating fans to the hits from their hugely successful album Hats off to the Buskers.

Doherty first gave the View a break when Babyshambles toured the UK last year and the singer handed the Scottish band a support slot.

They have since embarked on their own headline tour of the UK and will play at a number of UK festivals this year.

Babyshambles are putting the finishing touches to their second album, which will be released in the autumn and is produced by Blur collaborator Stephen Street.

Bassist Drew McConnell, writing on the band's MySpace page, said that recording with Doherty had gone particularly well this time around.

"What's clear now is this second Shambles effort is loaded with a bounty of committed and driven performances by our band leader and first amongst equals," he said.

The band will play at this year's Glastonbury festival on the Other stage.
