Darn, I wish I was heading to Brazil in January. Sun, sea, pre-carnival vibes and…Amy Winehouse? Ms. Winehouse has announced that she’ll be heading to Brazil for a one-off tour mid January, with support of Janelle Monae and Mayer Hawthorne (except for the Arena HSBC show, which will just feature Janelle). Sick line-up – can a promoter organise this in London now, please?

Details of the shows are as follows:

8th January 2011 – Summer Soul Festival, Il Divino, Florianopolis
11th January 2011 – Arena HSBC, Rio de Janeiro
13th January 2011 – Summer Soul Festival, Covention Center, Recife
15th January 2011 – Summer Soul Festival, Chácara do Joquei, Sao Paulo

Tickets for all four shows are on sale on 22nd November from here.
