Amy Winehouse Sets US Tour Dates, Hits Top Ten

mojo-photo-amywinehouse.jpgIt wouldn’t be surprising if you missed British R&B singer Winehouse the last time she came through your town; most of the venues were booked long before her recent, extraordinary rise to fame in the US, and thus were too small for the crowds. This time she’s planning ahead: booking, for instance, two nights at the 3,000-capacity Warfield in San Francisco. However, with “Rehab” rocketing 38 slots (!) to land just inside the Billboard Top 10 this week, and her album, Back to Black, selling over 560,000 copies in the US to date, those dates will probably sell out fast. If you’re a fan of Winehouse’s neo-soul (and I wasn’t at first but I have to say it’s really growing on me) get your tickets soon.

Dates and some videos after the jump.

9/12 – Central Park SummerStage, New York
9/13 – Tower Theatre, Philadelphia
9/18-19 – Wiltern, LA
9/21-22 – Warfield, SF
9/24 – Orpheum, Vancouver
9/25 – Paramount, Seattle
9/28 – Stage Theatre, Minneapolis
9/29 – Aragon Ballroom, Chicago

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
