Amy Winehouse has scored a gig rumoured to be worth £1 million ($2.05 million) performing in an old Russian bus garage.

The Rehab singer is being offered the huge sum for the private show in June.

Daria ‘Dasha’ Zhukova – girlfriend of Chelsea Football Club owner, billionaire Roman Abramovich – is heading a project to turn the 1920s building in Moscow into a contemporary art gallery and has lined up Amy for a launch-night performance.

The gallery – to be called the Center for Contemporary Culture – is not due to open until September but Daria says they are planning a one-off event in the northern summer.

She says they have booked Amy for the night, however Daria will not confirm how much the singer is being paid to appear.
