But NME reports that she finally may be making a real comeback. Starting this Saturday at the Summer Soul Festival at Il Divino Florianopolis in Brazil, Winehouse will begin a four-date stint where she’ll perform some new cuts. Her backing singer Zalon spilled the beans on Twitter, writing “Band rehearsing for Brazil tour! Get Ready! New songs.” And pictures of her rehearsing have been posted on a fan site.
Excited? Her surprise appearances over the last few years have been shaky, to say the least. Last summer The Guardian reported that she forgot the lyrics to her hits while on stage with Mark Ronson. And her slurred cover of Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party” on Quincy Jones’ latest album wasn’t exactly encouraging either. But hey, hoping and assuming she’s past issues that have held her back in the past–namely substance abuse–the audience this Saturday may be in for a huge treat.
What you you think, Mixers? Will Amy be up to the task? Are you rooting for her official comeback? Let us know.
