Pete Doherty is planning a solo concert at London's Royal Albert Hall.

The gig was supposed to take place on April 26th but was delayed due to Pete's incarceration and will now happen on July 12th.

According to NME magazine, fans who purchased tickets for the original date will be able to exchange them for new tickets valid for the rescheduled date.

The publication adds that this show will not be Pete's first since he regained his freedom as he is set to join his band Babyshambles on stage at the London Kentish Town Forum on May 13th.

Pete was released from Wormwood SCRUBS Prison, where he was serving time for breaching the terms of his probation, on Tuesday after 29 days of his 14-week sentence had passed.

OK! magazine reports that a special post-prison welfare fund set up by an online retailer, designed to furnish Pete with money to get his life back into shape, raised just £17.20 from the sale of stripy tops.

A spokesman from the website said: "Sales have been somewhat disappointing - we only sold six stripy tops.

"We had planned to do a big presentation and get a big cheque made up but it seems pointless for a mere £17 quid and change."
