London (ANI): Amy Winehouse has announced her plan to return to the
stage after a two-year touring hiatus with four January shows in
Brazil. After two years battling legal and personal issues, the pop
and soul singer is scheduled to appear at three stops on Brazil's
Summer Soul Festival: January 8 in Florianopolis, January 13 in
Recife, and January 15 in Sao Paulo, reports the Independent.
In the middle of the festival, she is also scheduled to headline
a January 11 show at the Arena HSBC in Rio de Janerio. Her last
public performance was a four-song set in October to celebrate the
launch of her Fred Perry fashion line. Winehouse also just released
her first new track since her breakthrough album, 2006's 'Back to
Black" - a track titled 'It's My Party' on the Quincy Jones
compilation Q: Soul Bossa Nostra.
Winehouse rocketed to fame with the release 'Back to Black",
which scooped five Grammy awards, but her creative output dried up
while she had a well-documented battle with drugs. 'Back to Black" reached number one in album charts in 16 countries.
