Pete Doherty unveiled a new Babyshambles line-up this week confusing fans as to the group's current status.

'Last Of The English Roses' singer Pete was due to play a solo show in London on Tuesday (20.04.10), but instead appeared to play with a different line-up of his full-time band.

Appearing alongside Pete was guitarist Mik Whitnall and an unknown drummer, but Adam Ficek and bassist Drew McConnell were conspicuously absent, sparking rumours the band is to change its line-up before releasing a new album later this year.

Fans chanted the absent members names, and Pete indicated that the players with him were the current lien up of the band, causing some fans to walk out of the show.

Adam said he was "perplexed" by the move, tweeting: "Cheers for the support all, am as confused as all???

"Was looking forward to gigs/newrecordz. Headache! Perplexed. Such an odd time. Really chuffed at all your Ficek/MCConnell love (sic)."

Rumours circulated that the band would split when Pete announced earlier this year he will play two one-off shows with his former band, The Libertines, at festivals this summer. This was further fuelled by Pete saying the band "are no more," a statement he quickly retracted and management denied.
