When Amy Winehouse was denied to perform with Stevie Wonder
Posted June 28, 2010on:
Singer Amy Winehouse was denied to perform duet with Stevie Wonder at Hard Rock Calling.
Amy was to view the gig from the mixing desk in the middle of the crowd, but it could have been a huge security risk and she was thus offered side of stage passes.
But, instead of watching the soul man, 60, from the left of the stage, Amy made a beeline for the other side, which was only for performers.
“Amy rocked up at the right-hand side and told the stage manager she had been invited to sing with,” the Daily Star quoted the source as saying.
“He put his foot down and told her that would not happen.”
“Stevie had planned to duet with Corinne Bailey Rae and Jay Kay from Jamiroquai but he decided it would be better to give the fans the solo set they had expected to see.”
“Amy’s management were on site at Hyde Park at lunchtime doing a reccy of the area. They wanted her to be able to view the gig from the mixing desk in the middle of the crowd.”
“It would’ve been a huge security risk so they were denied and offered side of stage passes instead,” the source added.
