Drug and Alcohol addictions
Amy Winehouse's drug and alcohol addictions caught media attention in 2007 when the opening night of a 17-date tour was ruined by booing and walkouts from fans in Birmingham. A music critic for the Birmingham Mail said it was 'one of the saddest nights of my life...I saw a supremely talented artist reduced to tears, stumbling around the stage and, unforgivably, swearing at the audience.'
Other nights ended similarly, with fans saying that she looked highly intoxicated throughout. The tour was cut short when she cancelled after advice from her doctor to take a complete rest.
