Arctic Monkeys’ Old Trafford continues with Amy Winehouse

The diva is on time and on song for Manchester gig

Arctic MonkeysOld Trafford gig at Lancashire County Cricket Club has continued this afternoon (July 28) with Amy Winehouse taking the stage.

Defying recent speculation about her reliability after a series of missed gigs, the singer arrived onstage promptly at 3.20pm (BST) and launched into her performance straightaway.

Wearing a dazzling yellow top and sharp shorts, Winehouse treated the Manchester crowd to an impressive run through of her albums ’Frank’ and recent release ’Back To Black’.

With her backing singers/dancers and a full band, she played the likes of ’Back To Black’, The Specials cover ’Hey Little Rich Girl’ and ‘Monkey Man’, plus Lauryn Hill’s ’Doo Wop (That Thing)’.

After a swinging version of ’I’m No Good’, she then triggered a massive sing-a-long and loud cheers for ’Rehab’ before finishing with The Zutons’ cover ’Valerie’.

Amy Winehouse played:


‘Just Friends’


‘He Can Only Hold Her’

‘Back To Black’

‘Wale Up Alone’

‘Losing Game’

‘Hey Little Rich Girl’

‘You’re Wondering Now’


‘Me And Mr Jones’

‘I’m No Good’

‘Monkey Man’


The Coral are due on stage next, with Supergrass to follow before Arctic Monkeys themselves take the stage.
