Amy Winehouse Turns Up Late To Concert
Amy Winehouse has performed at her first concert since leaving rehab to a sold-out crowd - although the singer appeared almost an hour late to the Lisbon show, the CM reported.
Winehouse was at the Rock in Rio Lisboa festival in Lisbon, Portugal on Friday for the concert, the first of a series over the summer.
On her arrival, the 90,000-strong crowd that had been booing started cheering. But the singer warned her throat was hoarse and some of the songs were croaky, according to reports.
Although the song list was shortened, Winehouse had the crowd singing along to her hits, including Rehab and Valerie.
Fans also cheered loudly when she said she had recently celebrated her first anniversary with husband Blake Fielder-Civil, who is currently in prison awaiting trial, according to the BBC.
The set lasted for around 55 minutes before Winehouse left to make way for Lenny Kravitz.
A report from Associated Press said the crowd was "subdued" following the set, as the singer failed to perform an encore.
The singer is due to appear at several concerts in Europe over the summer, including one for Nelson Mandela's birthday in London.
Although her singing career has gone from strength to strength, the star has been in and out of rehab in recent months. Winehouse was recently questioned by the police over footage of her apparently inhaling fumes from a crack pipe, but no charges have been brought.
