Amy Winehouse to arrive at Glastonbury by helicopterJune 26th, 2008 - 6:19 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, June 26 (ANI): Amy Winehouse will arrive for Glastonbury music festival in style by helicopter.
The Rehab singer, who was hospitalised after collapsing at her London home last week, is keen on performing at the event, and thus organizers have offered to hire her a helicopter to fly her directly to the site.
“Amy was one of the first acts Glastonbury started talking to about performing this year, so they’ll do all they can to help ensure she is fit to sing, China Daily quoted a source, as saying.
“Amy travelled by private plane to her recent show in Lisbon and she’s been offered a helicopter to minimize the stress of travelling to Glastonbury,” the source added.
The 24-year-old is expected to appear on stage at 10pm and will be followed by headliner Jay-Z.
She is also slated to perform at Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday concert in London’s Hyde Park on June 27, and has left hospital for rehearsals.
Winehouse will have medics on standby at the show, and she will go straight back to hospital afterwards. (ANI)
