The troubled singer Amy Winehouse has her hopes for a musical comeback put on hold as she is forced to cancel her show in California’s Coachella Music Festival next month because of the assault charges she currently faces in London.
Her rep Chris Goodman, denied that she was actually denied access to the U. S. But he confirmed to news sources that “She cannot go because of current legal issues.” The good news in the middle of all this is that, she has been confirmed as a major act at a 50th birthday celebration of Island, her British record label, on May 31. Well we have our doubts about her showing up. I guess we just will have to wait and see.
After her lengthy vacation in the Caribbean, she has been settling into her new home. It is believed that she had begun the process of getting a visa for Coachella but had not applied formally yet. Her court date in London is March 17.
She was formally charged last week and her management assumed that she will not be able to sort out the legal case in time for her to make it to the music festival in time.
This is the second time the estranged wife of Blake Fielder-Civil has failed to make it to her show because of visa trouble. She also failed to attend the 2008 Grammy awards due to logistical issues, and ended up performing from London through satellite as she bagged five awards.
