London, Aug 30 (ANI): English singer songwriter Amy Winehouse missed out on the three-day Rock En Seine festival in Paris, as she was ill and unable to travel.

Winehouse, who was supposed to be the star performer at the festival, was confined to her house in London.

However, she is still expected to perform at the Bestival festival on Isle of Wight on September 6.

“Amy Winehouse was regrettably unable to perform at the Rock En Seine show in Paris tonight, Friday August 29, due to illness, the Daily Telegraph quoted her spokesman as saying.

“She was taken ill at her house and wasn”t able to travel to France for the concert,” he said.

The Rehab singer has not been in the best of health, having spent a stint in rehab before emerging for a well-received performance at the Grammys in February.

Winehouse had in June developed the chronic lung disease emphysema and was rushed to the hospital, and then just last month she had to be taken back to the hospital after a reaction to medication. (ANI)
