The band are made up of hand-picked experienced musicians, carefully selected to maintain the accuracy to the original performances of the UK’s brightest star that so tragically burned out in 2011. The crafted show focuses on the vocal talent and soul of Amy, unhindered by the dark side to her addictions to alcohol and substances. Lioness provide, without doubt, the most authentic recreation of Amy Winehouse, designed to entertain and deliver the experience of Amy at her very best.

Selling out 10 venues on this tour covering over 5,000 miles and selling in excess of 5,000 tickets The Amy Winehouse experience have delivered at every level.
Emma comments: "Performing as Amy Winehouse with the full band of Lioness is the best way to keep Amy's legacy alive. We all work hard to capture and re-create the talent of this sadly missed song writer in the most authentic manner, whilst trying to maintain the integrity of the many positive aspects of her music career. The band have enjoyed our third UK and Irish tour so very much and it will feel very special to end this run of 25 dates so very close to home on the Fylde coast before we fly over to Spain to finish the tour. The band have been so very well received and we feel so lucky to be able to help keep Amy's music alive."
The talented singer from the United States Natasha Jane Julian will be taking the stage to support Lioness from 7:30pm who will be performing as a duo with her guitarist on her new material including her latest single "Tomorrow Will Come" along with some acoustic numbers.
