Amy Winehouse Heads Home, Cancels All Tour Dates

The recent jailing of Blake Fielder-Civil has caused the cancellation of Amy Winehouse's upcoming tour plans, including a tentative run through the U.S. in 2008. Winehouse's husband was arrested on charges of obstructing justice earlier this month after police raided the couple's London home. The 25 year old and his friend Michael Brown allegedly offered a bartender $400,000 to withdraw a police statement after the pair assaulted him in June.
"I can't give it my all onstage without my Blake," Winehouse said in a statement. "I'm so sorry, but I don't want to do the shows half-heartedly. My husband is everything to me and without him it's just not the same."
Winehouse's move will likely work out in her favor, what with the poor reviews her recent gigs have gotten.
