Amy Winehouse cancels European tour dates after Serbia meltdown

Amy Winehouse taking a couple of weeks out to try and sober up.

British singer Amy Winehouse has cancelled shows in Instanbul and Athens after getting booed in Belgrade for appearing to be too drunk to perform.

A spokesman said Ms Winehouse would like to apologise to fans, but “feels that this is the right thing to do”.

Her spokesman added that Ms Winehouse will return home after agreeing with management that “she cannot perform to the best of her ability”.

Her tour, which was originally scheduled to include 12 performances, is now due to resume in Bilbao, Spain, on 8th July.

The concert in Belgrade was the first of her latest tour, which was supposed to be a fresh start after recent treatment for alcohol addiction.

Reports say “She sang a few strained notes, before stumbling across the stage and at one point throwing her microphone to the floor.”

“At times she left the stage altogether – her band attempting to fill in.”

THe BBC’s Mark Lowen said “She was frequently booed by the crowd. Many had paid up to €45 to see her in a country in which wages are some of the lowest in Europe, and their anger was clear.”

Amy Winehouse hasbeen a train wreck for a long time now. It goes to show that addiction shows no favourites. It doesn’t matter how famous, rich or talented you are – it is no exemption from an addiction.

Newswarped hopes she gets it sorted before it is too late.
