Anita! Re: your appearance in Los Angeles Your insurance on bright white (often flashing) ruined an otherwise great performance. Instead of creating an intimate atmosphere with your audience, you've blinded them. If you want to see your audience use ceiling lights; dont destroy the the backdrop the large screen display, the about of your fans to enjoy watching and listening. It was so bad, so blinding, I walked out mid way through. My box went empty.

First Anita’s microphone was so loud it drowned out the rest of the band and back up singers, whereas they could barely be heard. Also, all you could hear was the piano, saxophone, the rest of band could not be heard clearly. How do you have a concert without the bass drum pulse and the bass and guitar. Also, the other keyboard player was drowned out! The pulse was missing over all! However, we love what Anita brought to Oaktown..

I Love Anita Bake and was so excited to see her only to listen to the crowd sing most of the songs and when she did sing the acoustics were soooooooo bad. it seemed like the concert was very low budget. Maybe it is a good thing this was her farewell tour

Deeply disappointed! The music was good and her audience sang a good number of her biggest hits. Problem is...I didn't know I was going to an Anita Baker sing along!!! This woman allowed the audience to sing every single song and she was completely drowned out. She didn't even attempt to control her audience so I guess all the jokes me made about being tired weren't really jokes. She's one of my all time favorite female artists but she completely ripped us off. The only thing comparable to my excitement before the show was my disdain during and after. Completely dissatisfied!!!

I attended the show on Friday June 1, 2019. Although Anita Baker can sing, I did not expect the entire show to be a sound check. It was a big waste of my money and time. She sang approx 5 songs because she kept complaining about the reverb, and inability to hear the horns and piano, but that’s what the soundcheck is for.

I was very excited to see Anita. First, she was an hour late with no explanation. Second, the first song lasted 20 minutes with very little singing from Anita In fact , she hummed her way through all her songs. The band was fantastic and they carried her. She kept saying she was tired but if I didn’t know better, I think she was stoned. The sax player was awesome. The band played over any attempt Anita made to sing. Very disappointing. Baby Face was awesome and sang longer and better than Anita. One of the highlights was Usher appearing on stage. I really wanted to hear Anita sing her songs but she wasn’t up to it.

We left. She seemed high and sang (in my opinion) off tune quite a bit of the time.
