Rocker Courtney Love has cancelled her plans to perform at this year's Carling Weekend festival in England to concentrate on her new album.

The former Hole frontwoman was scheduled to play at the popular festival sites in Reading and Leeds over the August bank holiday weekend (03).

However, Kurt Cobain's widow has opted to nix the shows in order to put the finishing touches on her first solo record AMERICA'S SWEETHEART.

Her spokesperson says, "She is sorry to have disappointed her UK fans but hopes that they understand that her focus must be the new album, Courtney's first in four years."
