BELGRADE, Serbia — Amy Winehouse was booed and jeered during a concert in Serbia's capital as she stumbled onto the stage, mumbled through her songs and wandered off.

Serbian media described the concert late Saturday kicking off her European tour before some 20,000 fans as a "scandal" and a "disaster." The Blic daily said the concert was "the worst in the history of Belgrade."

Winehouse, who has publicly struggled with drugs and alcohol, was almost an hour late, before stumbling to the stage and appeared unable to remember the lyrics to her songs. She dropped the microphone and occasionally disappeared, her band playing instead.

The crowd at Belgrade's fortress could hardly tell which song Winehouse was singing and responded angrily. Many walked out in disappointment.

"It was horrible," said Ivana Bilic, a fan. "She should have canceled the whole thing, rather than appear at all like this."

The Daily Blic posted a clip from the concert on its website, commenting, "Listen if you dare."

Tickets cost about euro40 ($57) – very expensive in the country where average salaries are about euro300 ($428) a month.

Winehouse recently spent a week at a rehab program in London. Her 2006's "Back to Black," won her five Grammy Awards, but her music has been overshadowed by drug use and run-ins with the law.

I'm just surprised that there are people in Serbia willing to pay money to see Amy Winehouse.

I don't even know where the fuck Serbia is.. :icon_redf
It used to be part of Yugoslavia if that helps. And I just learned from Wikipedia that over 1/3 of the world's raspberries are grown in Serbia. So they've got that going for them.

Fixed. I will admit she has talent but she is a doped out drunk piece of trash. Fuck that vapid twat and anyone who pays to support her bullshit.

How does Serbia know about Amy Winehouse? Shouldn't they just be getting the into Outkast and Matchbox 20?

She's got one hit song with overproduced vocals under her belt from a few years ago and she's still touring for decent coin? Silly adolescents.

No way. She definitely has a GREAT voice. Very different from the typical shit that's out there. But it's all going to waste now. It'd be different if she had a shitty personal life, but put out amazing performances, like other famous drunks. But because of her drinking, she's sucking all around. She's destroying something very few people in this world get. Wtf is wrong with her? What will be her rock bottom? Death?
