Pete Doherty covers Amy Winehouse at Leeds Festival

As he returned to Leeds Festival as a solo artist last night (August 26) Pete Doherty covered 'Tears Dry On My Own' as a tribute to his close friend, Amy Winehouse.

Last year, the frontman reunited The Libertines to play the Main Stage at the event, while this year Muse took over.

Doherty made his Leeds Festival debut with The Libertines back in 2002, then was suspended from the band and missied their 2003 and 2004 appearances there. He played their 2004 show on the Main Stage and then performed twice with Babyshambles before last year’s reunion.

Friday's show had few unreleased material, but the singer played ’Stranger In My Own Skin’ – a song that has made its way into solo and Babyshambles setlists before but never officially released.

He ended the set with 'Fuck Forever’ after his cover tribute to his late friend Winehouse.
