Troubled singer Amy Winehouse sparked fresh fears for her health after a disastrous appearance at the first show in her comeback tour, where fans booed and jeered the star.
The Back to Black hitmaker kicked off her European trek in Belgrade, Serbia on Saturday – her first planned gig since her most recent rehab stint earlier this month.

Winehouse was allegedly planning to steer clear of booze before her new set of shows, but left fans shocked when she staggered on to the stage at the show at Belgrade’s fortress.

In video footage of the gig, Winehouse is seen stumbling around the stage while trying to hug her band, before kicking off her shoes. She then moves towards the microphone and slurs a half-hearted version of her song Just Friends. According to reports, she left the stage several times, leaving her band to play on without her.

The seemingly nervous singer was twitching and bleary-eyed throughout her performance, which local media labelled a “disaster”.

The crowd soon grew tired of the singer’s antics and booed and jeered throughout her set.

Winehouse, who has long struggled with substance abuse, has not released a new album since 2006’s stellar success Back to Black.
