Amy Winehouse's appearance in Quincy Jones gig cancelled

Monday May 25, 2009

Days after cancelling what was being hailed as her UK comeback gig, it's emerged that Amy Winehouse will no longer be appearing in a tribute gig for Quincy Jones – the man behind Michael Jackson's biggest albums.

Producer and composer Quincy, 76, had become disillusioned with Amy after she failed to produce a track for a tribute album he was putting together, the Daily Mirror reports.

The news follows a statement released at the weekend by the 25-year-old singer's management, who said it "regretfully" announced Amy and her band would no longer be performing at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire on Sunday, May 31.

"Amy would like to apologise to her fans who bought tickets," said her representative
