Amy Winehouse Goes From Covering Alicia Keys To Opening For Jay-Z

May 21st, 2008 // Comment

Organizers of the Glastonbury Festival have told the BBC that Amy Winehouse will perform at next month’s festival, which has so far been plagued by disappointing ticket sales and public bickering over whether or not Jay-Z is an “appropriate” headliner. Winehouse, who actually managed to get attention for being involved in the making of music this week, is only expected to deliver what one Glasto organizer Emily Eavis is calling “one of the biggest sets of the summer, supporting the most anticipated artist at Glastonbury in the past 38 years.” Uh, no pressure there, right? Whether or not she’ll be able to pull off a full set, as opposed to a single-sing TV appearance–or, heck, even show up–will probably be signaled by her scheduled appearance at the Rock in Rio next Friday. She’ll be opening for Lenny Kravitz, which doesn’t really seem to me like motivation to get back in the saddle, work-wise. [BBC]
