U.S. won't be able to enjoy a British wave at least this month after Lily Allen and Amy Winehouse both canceled their appearances in the States. While Allen's working permit is reported revoked, Winehouse is catching a break for the sake of her health.

Allen, who was held for five hours in a Los Angeles airport having trouble with her visa, will not appear in 2007 MTV Video Music Awards as scheduled. She was initially set to perform on the September 9 event with Common and Kanye West but now her renewed visa won't arrive in time.

The visa trouble also affects her tour that will kick off September 6 in San Diego. A released statement read: "The reinstatement process has proven lengthier than ancticipated, thus preventing her tour from launching on September 6 in San Diego,C.A." Allen has admitted of being "so disappointed" and promised to "be back as soon as I can".

In the mean time, Winehouse pulled the plug of her two dates in V Festival this weekend (August 18-19) and will be replaced by Happy Mondays. She will still proceed with the Toronto leg of the festival next month and is welcomed by the festival's director Simon Moran to return next year.

A spokesperson for Winehouse's label Island said, "Amy Winehouse is putting all her touring commitments on hold until further notice in order to address her health issues. Her family has requested that the media respect Amy's privacy at this time. There will be no further comment."

Whinehouse collapsed on August 7 following two back-to-back performances at two U.S. festivals, the Virgin Festival in Baltimore and Lollapalooza in Chicago. She was then treated at London's University College Hospital before checking in Causeway clinic on Thursday (August 16) with her husband Blake Fielder-Civil.
