    Pete Doherty played a 'freedom gig' in London yesterday afternoon (July 9).

    The Babyshambles man took to the stage at the Blues Kitchen in Camden to celebrate being released early from prison on Tuesday (5).

    Although the gig was originally scheduled for the evening, the singer was forced to move it to the afternoon under the conditions of his release, which apparently stipulate that he is not allowed to leave his home between 7pm and 7am.

    Doherty played for over an hour, kicking off the set with 'Bound Together' - which you can watch fan footage of by scrolling down and clicking below.

    'Don't Look Back Into The Sun''Time For Heroes' and 'Can't Stand Me Now'were also given an airing.

    Doherty served just over six weeks of a six-month sentence for cocaine possession.

    However, his legal troubles appear to be far from over - he could still face up to five years in prison for charges of burglary, after he allegedly broke into a record shop in Germany and stole a guitar.
