Amy Winehouse's problems with drink and drugs have been well documented, but hopes were high for her comeback performance in Serbia over the weekend.

The concert, intended to be the first of her European tour, turned into a disaster as Winehouse barely sang, stumbled around the stage and occasionally disappeared.

Her performance was met with a chorus of boos from the audience.

Following the negative reception in Serbia, her spokesman confirmed that "Amy Winehouse is withdrawing from all scheduled performances...everyone involved wishes to do everything they can to help her return to her best and she will be given as long as it takes for this to happen."
