The singer/songwriter was booked to perform at the Rough Trade East store, but couldn't get there on time.

A statement released on Twitter by venue bosses reads: ''Due to delays en route, unfortunately @petedoherty in-store at @RoughTrade tonight has been cancelled. Sincerest apologies to all."

Pete hopes to reschedule the date.

Reports suggest The Libertines star was held up as he travelled back to the U.K. from Hamburg, Germany, where he has been working on a new album featuring a tribute to his late friend Amy Winehouse.
