London: Rocker Pete Doherty has scrapped a string of gigs over the summer after checking into rehab in Thailand.

The troubled musician headed to The Cabin rehabilitation centre in Chiang Mai on June 26 to try and overcome his ten-year addiction to heroin and crack cocaine for good, reported a website.

Doherty, 33, was slated to appear at Scotland`s T in the Park, Rock for People in the Czech Republic, and Portugal`s Super Bock Super Rock festivals in July.
