Scarlett Johansson to play summer festival dates?

Singer hints that she is considering playing live

Actress Scarlett Johansson, who released an album of Tom Waits covered named ‘Anywhere I Lay My Head’ yesterday (May 19), has hinted that she may play festival dates this summer.

The star said that the only thing stopping her was stagefright.

“It would be sad to not get everybody [band members] together,” she told The London Paper. “Whether it’s at a festival or somewhere that’s kind of fun.

“[But] I have horrible stage fright, so it would have to be overcome. People approach me [about playing live] and my usual answer is, ‘Ah, I’ll think about that’.

“When I do think about it, I start to get really sweaty and uncomfortable and itchy around the neck.”
