Sport Business News

UK songstress Amy Winehouse will return to the stage for her first official concert in two years. The 27–year–old singer confirmed her appearance for a "one–off" tour in Brazil during early 2011, via her official website.

The 'Back to Black' creator is set to perform during Brazil's Summer Soul Festival. Dates include 8 January in Florianopolis, 13 January in Recife and 15 January in Sao Paulo. Winehouse will also make a pit stop at the Arena HSBC on 11 January 2011 in Rio de Janeiro to satisfy fans. Eclectic singer Janelle Monae will captivate audiences alongside Winehouse on all tour dates, while crooner Mayer Hawthorne tags along solely on the Summer Soul slots. Fans can buy tickets on www. livepass. com. br beginning 22 November 2010. The tour announcement comes on the heels of UK newspaper The Sun reporting that the performer was booked for six dates in Brazil and one in Russia. The newspaper stated the singer would expect to make around £300, 000 ($482, 000) from each show.
