Amy Winehouse pulls out of Stones gig

Amy Winehouse has pulled out of two Rolling Stones gigs in Germany after she was admitted to hospital last week.

The 23-year-old, who was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, was due to appear as a support act at Dusseldorf's LTU Arena and the AOL Arena in Hamburg.

The cancelled sets are the latest in a string of gigs the singer has pulled citing exhaustion or ill health.

A spokesman for the star declined to comment over a Sunday newspaper's claim she was treated for a drugs overdose.

Classic rock band, The Answer, will replace her as the opening act for tonight's concert in Dusseldorf.
