Amy Winehouse Announces Tour Dates in Brazil
Winehouse will play three dates for Brazil's Summer Soul Festival -- Jan. 8 in Florianopolis, Jan. 13 in Recife and Jan. 15 in Sao Paulo -- with a Jan. 11 gig at the Arena HSBC in Rio de Janerio in between. Last week, The Sun had reported that the singer was booked for six dates in Brazil and one in Russia.
The dates will mark Winehouse's first proper live shows since 2008, after the beleaguered singer dropped out of several high-profile gigs including the 2009 Coachella festival. In October, Winehouse played a surprise four-song set at the launch of her Fred Perry clothing line, and she joined Mark Ronson onstage at a London club gig in July.
"It's My Party," Winehouse's first new recording since her 2006 album "Black to Black," appears on the newly released Quincy Jones compilation, "Q: Soul Bossa Nostra."
