Mitch Winehouse's Amy tribute gig
The late Amy Winehouse's father, Mitch, has confirmed that a memorial concert in her honour will go ahead later this year.
Over the past month, rumours have been circulating in the press that suggest a tribute gig will be held at some point in 2012 and now Mitch has explained that it will definitely happen. Speaking to the Press Association, he revealed:
"The Amy Winehouse Foundation is very excited to be planning a benefit concert in tribute to Amy later this year. We will be talking to a variety of people in the coming months and will announce those performing as soon as we can."
Although no announcements have been about potential performers, Lily Allen recently admitted that she "would be honoured" to take part.
