Sometimes it is not enough to have a “real” ticket to attend the show. Many fans of Amy Winehouse will be able to talk about it, those who have often seen their idol play the Arlesian rather than playing on stage. Those who, in 2007, had their precious sesame for the opening of the Glastonbury Festival did not experience this disappointment.
This Friday, June 22, on the main stage (“The Pyramid Stage”), in the early afternoon, Amy Winehouse was there, a few months after the release of her legendary album “Back to Black”, a few days before cancel the rest of his tour and four years before his death, at that so sad famous age of 27 for “legendary” artists.
Glastonbury is not dead. The English festival is preparing to live, from June 22 to 26, its 49th edition after two years of “covidesque” abstinence. To “mark the occasion”, Universal offers us the masterful recital, in full, of the Briton fifteen years later, in the form of a double vinyl album. Fifty minutes and dust to listen to the star spin and feel her hair rise from the first notes of “Rehab”, “Back to Black” or “You Know I’m No Good”.
The unclassifiable class
Without fuss and always with the same unclassifiable class by resuming Sam Cooke (“Cupid”), Toots and the Maytals (“Monkey Man”) and the Zutons (“Valerie”), Amy Winehouse reminds us with such good pleasure that she has offered.
An angel has passed, but he can still be heard.
