The Island 50 headline show is pulled

Amy Winehouse‘s headline appearance at this month’s Island 50 festival in London has been cancelled.

Winehouse’s management have “regretfully” announced the singer will no longer be taking part in the show, which was due to take place at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on May 31.

The statement also says that “Amy would like to apologise to her fans who bought tickets for the shows. The show which was also to feature Toots & The Maytals and I Blame Coco has therefore been cancelled. Refunds for tickets will be issued at point of purchase.”

Toots & The Maytals have another gig in the Capital, taking place at Islington Academy on May 26.
