Default Winehouse

Oh lord.....

What an utter shambles, she was all over the place, missing words, staring at her feet,scratching all the time - she went off for 3 songs and the backing singer did the singing, booed for most of the songs and after a while everyone left.

Such a shame really as she is so talented, but jesus what a train wreck.

We were very tempted to go but I honestly didn't think she would have the mental enthusiasm to provide a worthwhile performance. After all, it's only a small Arab country with a miniscule fan base.

I don't know why promoters book her , she's still smoking rock and putting methadone on her weetabix so your not gonna get much value for money.

They should have put her in the Dubai Fountains to give her a good wash....!

It's just a shame more than anything, I do feel for her - she was a train wreck.

Tell you what, some people paid AED 1,000 for the 'back to black lounge' tickets which were basically just a bit higher up than everyone else, I'd be well gutted if I was them.

yeh, fair enough. she has the potential to be great.

Sadly, I think that she is at her best in a studio where she can do lines of coke between verses and the producers put it all together into something coherent.

I was there and it was awful - myself and many others left well before the end. From the crap venue, to the lengthy beer queue, to the "artist" there were not really any high points, apart from perhaps the spectacle of backing group trying to make up for her once she disappeared. It is a night out I regret. It could have been so much better....

At least it was in Dubai - just imagining that the Saudi leg of her tour could be worse....

"They tried to make me go to Riyad and I said...... no no no!"

Yeah they can't organise events over here, they pay the staff nowt but never have enough so that you don't queue for ages - I got there early and got myself 4 pints.

I'd say the organizers are as much to blame as anybody. The sound setup was pathetic and because the wind was travelling in the direction of the stage you couldn't hear her. They should have had speakers half way where the camera box was.

I'd say the crown started booing because they couldn't hear her - it just all went downhill from there really.

Flash know how to do a proper job. Their yas concerts were excellent.
