Amy Winehouse forced to cancel comeback gig

It's the first time in months that Amy had performed in front of an audience, but due to circumstances beyond anyone's control meant that this special show did not go as planned and the singer has expressed her disappointment that the gig ended.

In a statement, her spokesman said, "Amy would like to express her disappointment that weather forced the abandonment of her show at the St. Lucia Jazz Festival. The set started well, but as the heavens opened, a number technical difficulties occurred on stage, culminating with the lighting rig failing for two songs. In addition, rain began to flood the technical wings at the side of the stage which caused sound problems. Amy and the band tried to soldier on but the set had to be cut short. Amy is very disappointed as St Lucia has been wonderful to her and its people have welcomed her with open arms, but circumstances beyond anyone's control meant that this special show did not go as planned."

The singer is currently spending time recording on the island.
