Band honour late singer during Minneapolis gig
U2 dedicated their 2001 single ‘Stuck In A Moment You Can’t Get Out Of’ to Amy Winehouse during their show at Minneapolis‘s TCF Stadium on Saturday (July 23).
The band originally wrote the song for former INXS singer Michael Hutchence, who committed suicide in 1997 and was a close friend of members of the band. On Saturday though, they played the song in tribute to Winehouse, who had been found dead hours earlier in her house in Camden, London.
Before playing the song, Bono said from the stage: “We wrote this next song for Michael Hutchence, but you will understand tonight if we play it for Amy Winehouse.”
Tributes to the singer have also flooded in from the music world, with the likes of Lily Allen, Jessie J, Paramore‘s Hayley Williams and Boy George among those paying their respects.
Mark Ronson, who co-produced the singer’s hit 2006 album ‘Back To Black’, described Winehouse as his ‘musical soulmate’, while Faces dedicated their weekend gig at Hurtwood Park in Surrey to Winehouse‘s memory.
