U2 Dedicate Song to Amy Winehouse at Saturday Concert
Bono dedicated U2's song 'Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of' to Amy Winehouse during the band's Saturday concert in Minneapolis. The British soul singer was found dead earlier that day at her London apartment.
The song, which was originally penned in memory of late INXS singer Michael Hutchence, was performed as an acoustic number featuring only Bono and guitarist the Edge.
"We wrote this for Michael Hutchence … but tonight you will understand when we play it for Amy Winehouse," said Bono before performing the song. Video of the performance can be seen below.
Winehouse died at the age of 27, joining a long list of other musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Kurt Cobain who died at the same age. Several classic rockers reacted to her death on Twitter, with Ted Nugent and Dee Snider delivering harsh words about her lifestyle.
