Amy Winehouse Announces Tour Dates in Brazil

Amy Winehouse indulges in one of her favorite pastimes while watching The Libertines perform at The Forum in London on Aug. 25.

Amy Winehouse is set to play her first official shows in two years. The U.K. singer today (Nov. 17) announced a "one-off tour," scheduled for early next year in Brazil, on her website.

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.

Alt-soul singer Janelle Monáe will support Winehouse on all dates, with Mayer Hawthorne joining on the Summer Soul Festival gigs. Tickets for all four shows go on sale Nov. 22 at

Amy Winehouse Sings Again on Quincy Jones Album

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."
