Jeers force Winehouse to cancel Euro gigs

Amy Winehouse has cancelled part of her European tour after she was heavily booed for being late and displaying erratic behaviour on stage during a concert in Serbia.

Saturday's concert in Belgrade kicked off what was to be a 12-date tour of Europe. But Winehouse decided to cancel appearances in Istanbul tonight and in Athens on Wednesday.

The next scheduled concert date after Athens is July 8 in Bilbao, Spain.

A statement from Winehouse's publicists said she "has agreed with management that she cannot perform to the best of her ability and will return home".

Winehouse, who has publicly struggled for years with drug and alcohol issues, was jeered as she performed in Belgrade.

The singer, who recently spent a week in rehab in London, arrived almost an hour late before stumbling to the stage and appearing unable to remember lyrics.
