The Amy Winehouse Band announce return to KOKO, Camden for two shows in December 2024

The Amy Winehouse Band are returning to London for two shows in December 2024.

The group of musicians served as the original band of tragic ‘Tears Dry On Their Own’ singer Amy – who died in 2011 at the age of 27 as a result of alcohol poisoning – and following two sold-out dates towards the end of last year, they are thrilled to announce that they are returning to Koko in her hometown of Camden, which will follow on from the release of the biopic ‘Back to Black’ this spring.

Musical director and bass player Dale Davis said: “I hope this year will be a big year for Amy fans, with the release the film. From the snippets I’ve seen and being on the film set, it looks like it will be fantastic.

“If the upcoming KOKO shows are anything like last December’s shows, then the audience will be in for a great evening, celebrating Amy’s life and music.”

The band is fronted by Bronte Shandé and they toured all over Europe in 2022, later admitting that it was a joy to be able to play the music for audiences both old and new as they noted that some fans had told them that they were they “closest” thing to seeing Amy live again.

In an interview with The Times, the band said: “We’re enjoying the music afresh and seeing it played for new ears and old ears!”

During her short career, Amy achieved huge success with her debut album ‘Frank’ in 2003 and then released the 2006 chart-topper ‘Back to Black’ which featured the singles ‘You Know I’m No Good’, and ‘Rehab’ and earned the young star a string of Grammys and BRIT Awards.

The Amy Winehouse Band will return to Koko in Camden, London on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 December 2024.

Tickets for the shows are available from Ticketmaster / KOKO on Friday 2 February at 10am.
