Fans boo Winehouse
Troubled star Amy Winehouse infuriated fans at a gig on Wednesday by turning her performance into a bizarre tribute to jailed husband Blake Fielder-Civil.
The concert in Birmingham, England, was the singer's first public performance since her spouse was arrested and jailed last week for inflicting grievous bodily harm and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
Fans booed before walking out of the gig - the opening night of her UK tour - enraged by Winehouse's incoherent performance. Fans were also unimpressed when the singer stumbled on stage half an hour later than billed, before crashing into a guitar stand.
But Winehouse was unfazed by the booing from the crowd - and threatened them with the wrath of Fielder-Civil.
She told the audience, "Let me tell you something. First of all, if you're booing you're a mug for buying a ticket. Second, to all the people booing - just wait till my husband gets out."
After performing hit Back To Black, she said, "Nothing's going to bring my husband back." Winehouse then dedicated the track Wake Up Alone to Fielder-Civil, announcing, "This is for my husband".
At the end of the concert, Winehouse stopped singing closing number Valerie mid-way through, before dropping the microphone and walking off stage. - Wenn
