Amy Winehouse was forced to abandon a concert at the St Lucia Jazz festival because of ‘technical difficulties’, a spokesman has said.
It was the first time in months the 25-year-old singer had performed in front of an audience. Her spokesman said: ‘Circumstances beyond anyone’s control meant that this special show did not go as planned.’
He blamed the bad weather and said Winehouse would like to “express her disappointment” that the gig ended. Despite that fans have criticised her performance. Local resident Ben said her singing was ‘painful’. He added: ‘What a wasted talent.’
At one stage Winehouse appeared to forget the words to a song and told the crowd, ‘Sorry, I’m bored’. In a statement, her spokesman said: ‘Amy would like to express her disappointment that weather forced the abandonment of her show at the St Lucia Jazz Festival last night.
