Pete Doherty missed his Paris concert, and a Eurostar train was to blame.

The high-speed train that connects London and Paris made the journey in some five hours Thursday night. The trip usually takes just over two hours. That left fans of the Babyshambles singer waiting at the Grand Rex theater until the "we're sorry, the concert is canceled" announcement.

Eurostar officials said Doherty's train was due in Paris at 9:20 p.m. but arrived at 2:13 a.m. Friday due to a technical problem. That was too late for Doherty to make the show.
