AMY WINEHOUSE fans are invited to celebrate her life and music at a tribute show later this month.

The Royal Hippodrome Theatre in Eastbourne is staging what it says is “an authentic and respectful” tribute to the singer-songwriter who died in 2011 at the age of 27.

The Hippodrome says the show is the only one to be endorsed by both of Amy’s parents, Janis and Mitch Winehouse.

It said: “Taking songs from the multi-platinum selling albums Frank, Back To Black and Lioness: Hidden Treasures, world-renowned tribute artist Laura Jane Butler recreates the distinctive sound and heartfelt performances of the jazz and soul powerhouse.”

She will be performing hits including Valerie, Tears Dry On Their Own, Rehab, Love Is A Losing Game, You Know I’m No Good and Back To Black.

Show organisers said: “Laura recreates Amy’s most memorable live performances including the jazz standard from Ella Fitzgerald Someone To Watch Over Me, Amy’s version of Mister Magic from the legendary Grover Washington, Sam Cook’s Cupid and Monkey Man by The Specials.

“Praised worldwide by many of her loyal fans, this show truly is a celebration of the musical legacy left by the late, great superstar, Amy Winehouse.”

The show will be at the Royal Hippodrome Theatre on Saturday, March 14, at 7.30pm.

Tickets from £24 are available from the Box Office 01323 802020 or book online at
