Amy Winehouse won't play Coachella

Posted on

Troubled singer Amy Winehouse will not be playing California’s Coachella music festival next month because she faces assault charges in England for allegedly attacking a fan last September. According to People, Winehouse’s rep Chris Goodman has denied that U.S. authorities declined to issue her a work visa, saying only, “She cannot go [to Coachella] because of current legal issues.” Last year, Winehouse did not attend the Grammy awards because the U.S. government would not issue her a visa. By the time that decision was reversed, it was too late.
