Instead, the solo artist turned to her back catalogue and covers, among them 'Boulevard Of Broken Dreams' -- not the Green Day song from 2004, but one 70 years older -- from the 1934 film 'Moulin Rouge,' NME.com reports.
Winehouse faced an appreciative crowd at the Summer Soul Festival in Florianopolis, the first of five dates in Brazil set to earn her a reported £5 million ($7.7 million), according to The Sun. A source told the paper, "Amy will be rolling in it. Brazil is keen to establish itself as a major player in live music and is attracting a host of top stars. A lot of money is being thrown around to secure their services and it's working."
Last month, the performer played an exclusive show in Moscow, bankrolled by an anonymous Russian businessman. While fans of Amy will be pleased to hear about her getting back into regular live shows, there is still no news on a follow-up to her 2006 album 'Back to Black.'
Perhaps another positive sign is that before her opening gig, the performer spent time with reformed hellraiser Ronnie Wood -- the Rolling Stones guitarist had spent the New Year in Uruguay before crossing the border to see his mate.
