Winehouse was set for a tour in Europe but she pulled out after 20,000 fans booed her in her recent concert in Belgrade. Some disgusted fans walked out because Winehouse appeared to be drunk on stage, which lasted only 90 minutes. Winehouse could only mumble the lyrics and couldn't follow her own band.
