Amy Winehouse set for Glastonbury after Nelson Mandela gig

Singer makes British live return in London

Amy Winehouse is expected to make it to the Glastonbury festival tonight (June 28) after she played in London yesterday.

There had been considerable speculation that the singer would drop out of her slot on the Pyramid Stage (9.15pm BST) after she went to hospital last week.

However, following her discharge, Winehouse has reportedly undertaken a series of intensive rehearsals, the first fruits of which were seen in Hyde Park last night (June 27) where she played the 46664 show to celebrate Nelson’s Mandela‘s 90th birthday.

The singer performed ‘Rehab’ and ‘Valerie’ at the show which also featured the likes of Queen, Razorlight and Leona Lewis performing in front of over 50,000 fans.

Winehouse is now expected to travel down to the Glastonbury site today by helicopter.
