Maybe she knew this would get bigger headlines than a good show? Amy Winehouse canceled several shows on her current European tour after Saturday’s opening concert in Belgrade consisted of 70 minutes of slurring, stumbling and shoe-tossing (she did however, hug a few fans up front). According to the Daily Mail, huge efforts were taken by her management to keep Amy nowhere near booze before the performance, but…well…yeah.
Scrapping dates in Istanbul and Athens, Winehouse won’t be back on stage until at least July 8th. “Despite feeling sure that she wanted to fulfill these commitments, she has agreed with management that she cannot perform to the best of her ability and will return home,” said her rep in a statement. “She would like to apologize to fans expecting to see her at the shows but feels that this is the right thing to do.” Winehouse has been in out of rehab for about as long as we’ve known her name, with her last stint less than a month ago.
