Anyone manage to endure more than 3 or 4 songs of this terrible concert?

If so, how the **** did you survive?

What was so dreadful? Can't she sing live? Or was she completely off her head on whatever?

The sound check obviously wasn't done and she was just mumbling into the mike. She was continually rubbing her arms and looking around aimlessly - if I didn't know better I would have said she was going cold turkey.

For someone with a normally strong voice & character is was a real shambles.

That's terrible. Too late to try to get your money back, I suppose?

I think we lasted through five songs. I was kind of torn between feeling sorry for the girl and then really very annoyed on behalf of everyone who had paid money to watch this shambles. I'm not sure which bit was worse - the part where she cleaned her nails through each song, took her earrings out and stared at them in a confused fashion or needed to take a significant break between each track to remind herself what the heck she was doing.... Maybe rehab wouldn't have been such a bad idea...

oh my. in the afternoon i felt bad about not having a ticket but now i am glad we couldn't go. seriously, the other thread has lots of wisdom: how come we could go to jail for kissing, driving after a beer, etc but then they bring paris hilton, amy winehouse and alike and celebrate them?

Perhaps the strict drug laws in this country didn't quite agree with ms winehouse!

Her voice is amazing - I think it was worth taking the gamble!

Her voice was nowhere tonight. She should stop torturing herself and just sing in small settings. It was a NO Performance tonight. Her band singers plus instrumental performers where trying their best to make something of Amy's lack of performing.

I think she needs to go back to rehab baby!!!

I work in events... the first song being bad could be blammed on a bad sound check and a sh*t front of house engineer. But the whole gig no!!!

She needs to go back to rehab...

Checking out nails... nearly failing over... fighting with backing dancers... and forgetting words... I want a refund baby!!!

I think she wasn't so bad after she returned...Think she was cold and disturbed by the blinking big wheel (she always looked in that direction) and yes soundcheck is sth you should do before...

Such a shame - her encore was actually really good, but by that point most people had given up. If only she'd carried it like that the whole way through.
I honestly thought she wasn't going to come back on stage at one point, but I imagine there was a clause in her contract that said she wouldn't get the full pay cheque if she didn't complete the gig!!

They tried to make me go to rehab and Dubai said 'go, go, go'

So very sad and pathetic. ((sniff, sniff, scratch, scratch, pick, pick))

would have been a little more bearable if the miniscule bar had not taken 1 hour to get to! Shocking organization!
Then the bar shut at ridiculous o'clock so we just joined the mass exodus and left.
Just when you thought my night couldn't get any worse, made the mistake of going to the Belgium beer factory! never again!!

Third time I've seen her- Glastonbury, Brixton Academy and the Tots R Us are car park at DFC. The latter undoubtedly the worst. Shockingly bad.

Really disappointed. Like an earlier poster, also felt sorry for her and thought maybe the mike/ speakers at fault but then the backing singers sung and were great, no problem technically! Think she was bored, disinterested and arrogant, didn't even bother to greet her crowd, picking her fingers for gawds sake. She was 1 hour and 13 minutes from start to finish, disappeared in the middle for what, 20 minutes and spent another 20 minutes on solos from each (excellent) band member and mumbled the first half. Second half passable but she'd lost everyone by then. I didn't support the booing but..... Really wish I'd donated my ticket price to a good cause and not bothered. I hope she feels bad about tonight and the let down. What do u all think?

I'm with you arohadxb. Really sad that it didn't come up to scratch, but not surprised.

None of this surprises me and it's exactly why I didn't bother getting a ticket. People shouldn't be surprised, all her concerts are generally a shambles and she just needs to disappear and sort herself out, instead of flogging a dead horse.

Why on earth they booked the acts they did for 'BIKE' week is beyond me.

We felt sorry for the gold ticket holders who had paid 1000 dhs each to see that shower of sh*t. She should be ashamed of herself. She clearly didnt want to be there and looked totally bored. I've just calculated how much it cost us for a night out to see her 600 dhs for 2 tickets, 140 dhs return taxi, 150 dhs babysitter, 140 dhs beers. I wish i'd have stayed at home now!

i was winging all day that i didnt get tickets, after reading all this, so glad i didnt go now.
i had got tickets in manchester few years back to see her but she cancelled the gig anyways, as she was drunk or something.
Amy, give it up lov, you are no more!
im surprised they even let her in the country after the drink and drugs.

she gets booed off stage alot, not just here. Seems like this is regular occurence for her. She should stick to making records because they are great. Not a great performer though.
