Amy Winehouse Cancels Part of European Tour
Amy Winehouse may be headed back to rehab.
Following a disastrous performance in Belgrade, Serbia, during which the crowd booed Winehouse for arriving late and appearing too intoxicated to perform, the British singer is backing out of the next two stops on her upcoming European tour.
The Associated Press reports that according to a statement from publicity company Outside Organization, Winehouse will no longer perform in Istanbul, Turkey on Monday or Athens, Greece on Wednesday. It remains to be seen whether Winehouse will cancel the rest of the 12-date tour, which includes concerts in Spain, Switzerland and Romania.
"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 the statement, adding that Winehouse wanted to apologize to the fans who had been looking forward to seeing her on Monday and Wednesday.
This is the latest in a string of problems for the singer, who has battled drug and alcohol addiction for years. The European tour had been hailed as a comeback tour to celebrate her recent release from rehab.
