Amy Winehouse Trips Up At Comeback Gig

Amy Winehouse Trips Up At Comeback Gig

[b]Amy Winehouse[/b] performed her first live gig since taking a drug overdose in August, last night (Oct 15) at Berlin’s Tempodrom venue.

Winehouse's comeback show did not start well, with the singer tripping up on stage, followed by mumbling the opening lines of ‘Valerie’, her now customary rendition of The Zutons song.

Despite the underwhelming start, the singer won over the crowd by performing her smash hits ‘Rehab’ and ‘You Know I’m Know Good’.

The show last night, comes after two months of numerous gig cancellations, due to her publicised drug problems and stints in rehab.

The show in Berlin last night was the first of twelve dates scheduled across mainland Europe in the coming two weeks.

Following these European dates, Winehouse will return for her UK tour, which starts in Birmingham on November 14.
