Winehouse fizzles live

Young Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse’s performance at the St. Lucia Jazz Festival ended abruptly Friday. It was the first live performance she had given in months and fans were none too pleased.

Her publicist blamed torrential rains over the island for flooding the wings of the main stage for causing technical difficulties that the crew were unable to overcome. These issues climaxed with a light rigging failing for two songs.

It is unclear who made the decision to cut the show short, but concert goers were reported to have said the Winehouse sounded “pained” in her singing during the performance. She also seemed to have forgotten lyrics and was quoted as saying, “Sorry, I’m bored” during the show on the island she views as second home.
