Amy Winehouse still intends to play Glastonbury

Amy Winehouse is still expected to perform at next week's Glastonbury Festival and Nelson Mandela's birthday concert, despite her ongoing illness.

The singer is currently recovering in a London clinic after she fainted at her home last Monday (16 June).

But despite initial tests proving “inconclusive”, her spokesman said yesterday that she hopes to make both high profile dates, adding she was “awaiting the verdict of her doctors."

Winehouse is due to perform at Nelson Mandela's birthday charity concert in London next Friday (27 June), before warming up for headliner Jay-Z at Glastonbury the following day.
