I love Anita Baker, was more than excited for her show. All I wanted was to hear her sing her songs, instead I got crowd karaoke, she couldn't be heard. I was torn between the energy of the audience and wanting to hear one of my favorite artists sing her songs. I love Anita Baker, going to miss her.

First, let me start by saying I love Anita Baker! She looked amazing for any age. Her voice is still a National Treasure. The concert was sold out! The crowd was amped and ready for her long awaited return to the stage. However, I was completely turned off by her constant berating of the sound crew (embarrassing) and house staff (she complained about the fog machine being used). It was an instant buzz kill from minute one. I could not enjoy her wonderful voice and beautiful songs due to her excessive complaining! I walked out of the concert early just to get away from the negative energy radiating from this truly gifted artist. What a shame! All the right ingredients were present to make for a magical event but her behavior and "Diva Tantrums" left a very foul taste in my mouth. I felt like I parted with my hard earned cash and time to see and hear a very bad "Sound Check" that was masquerading as a concert. Totally unprofessional and disrespectful to an adoring audience.

Could not follow along with song choices...just saw her a few months ago in Connecticut. ..and she was amazing. Farewell also...maybe she should have made that the last show..because tonight she seemed extremely tired and the show started late and ended super quick. So! For all you Valentines lovers tomorrow...there's hardly any classic Anita Baker love songs . . . . beware...signing off a disappointed Anita Baker Fan for over twenty years. 😢.

Have loved Nitta since the 1980s. Babyface started off the evening and while he seemed a bit wobbly at first it was amazing to hear such an iconic singer/producer. His set became magical when he, and his band, began to play the sounds he wrote and produced. Wow! Anita came out and was giving a 'diva' vibe from the start. She seemed to yell a lot and blamed the sound team for her not being heard correctly. It was an ongoing theme throughout the night. She did have moments that reminded you why you were there, however, it was a disappointment overall. She didn't sing Body and Soul - even after it was repeatedly screamed out for her to sing. I was seated in the 6th row and the ticket was almost $500. When she indicated she was going to change and return for her encore I, along with many many others, left the arena.

The show was okay. Show time was supposed to be 8PM…yet Anita strolled out at 8:55PM…unacceptable. Her voice was beautiful but she talked way too much. Complained about the smoke machine, being tired, and other issues. It seemed like every song dragged on too long.

The Coliseum needs improvement from security check points to parking. The event was disorganized and frustrating for guests. The seats are entirely too small with no leg room. The performance started hours late, but was excellent once Anita Baker walked on stage. Anita song all of the audiences favorite songs from Angels to Rapture and more. She continued to perform from 9:00 to 11:00 pm. Thanks for giving us our money worth. My 3 star score is because of the Coliseum not Anita Baker.
