Babyshambles have confirmed they are to tour again this year, despite completing a Arena tour late last year.

The Pete Doherty led band are to hit the road again over the coming months in addition to the two dates confirmed next month.

A spokesperson for the band says, "Babyshambles are going on tour this year - it's something they have been planning for a while."

The confirmation comes in response to a report in The Mirror that the band are touring so soon after their last dates because they actually managed to lose money on their Arena dates, which failed to atract sell out crowds.
