On this day in 2008, Amy Winehouse was filmed punching an audience member present at her set at England’s Glastonbury Festival.
Performing on the festival’s Pyramid Stage, Amy Winehouse was performing her final song, ‘Rehab’, when she decided to venture in to the photographer’s pit to sing closer to the crowd.
Video of the incident shows the singer elbowing a a person in the crowd, then throwing a punch their way, before security steps in to defuse tensions. NME noted at the time that despite this incident, no complaints were made to police by the fan in question.
