"Amy Winehouse was regrettably unable to perform at the Rock En Seine show in Paris due to illness. She was taken ill at her house and wasn't able to travel to France for the concert," Telegraph quoted her rep, as saying. The circumstances of the 'Rehab' hitmaker's cancellation angered organisers so much that they stated on the festival's website that they are planning to sue her. Rock En Seine organisers said that there was "no explanation of the exact reasons for her absence".
"Amy Winehouse should have arrived on the site early Friday evening. We were told by her agent at 8:00 pm that she wasn''t coming," the statement read. "We are very sorry about this situation and share the disappointment of the festival-goers," the statement added.
She has performed at the Glastonbury and V festivals this summer and is due to take to the stage at Bestival next weekend. Her spokesman confirmed that she would still be honouring this commitment.
