Amy Winehouse for T in the Park

T in the Park boss Geoff Ellis has confirmed to the Daily Record newspaper that Amy Winehouse will, as rumoured, appear at this year's T in the Park, playing the main stage on Sunday 13th July, before Kings Of Leon and headliners R.E.M.

He said, "It's always been the intention to have Amy come to play T in the Park after what happened last year.

"We didn't want to put pressure on Amy but she felt really bad about pulling out and, if ever she needed reassurance about how the Scottish public felt about her, playing those two nights at the Barrowland really slammed it home. She hadn't had a good night in Birmingham when she opened her tour but as soon as she walked onstage in Scotland the reaction was phenomenal. They gave her such a warm welcome that she gave two great shows."

The troubled singer was due to play T in the Park last year, but had to cancel blaming 'exhaustion' for her no-show last time.

Ellis added: "Amy said, 'I still feel bad about last year and would love to play'. I'm so pleased she is coming to T. Her Grammys win and performance at the Brits shows she's back."

T in the Park 2008 takes place at Balado, Scotland on 11-13 July. Tickets are sold-out.
