I've seen Anita in several cities and the concert is always over an hour late. When she came out she was limping as she has been on all other concerts. She kept complaining about the engineering sound. She would sing one song and talk about 10min between songs. I came in from Chicago and was disappointed.

Two themes from reviews from other sites carried through to last night...the show was gonna be an hour late, and performance/sound staff showed little competence. Anita asked for a mic stand, staffer got one 5 minutes later, but set it down 40 feet from her. Anita called to him to get it closer, he disregarded her and walked off. Stage equipment wasnt tested before hand, she walked someone through getting it right. " the button that says Anita, baby..." Worse of all, though Anita Baker still showcased her talented voice, it couldnt be enjoyed due to the overwhelmingly loud bass. WHUMP, WHUMP!! RUMBLE, RUMBLE RUMBLE!! Every wham of the bass drum, every note of the preconcert prerecorded music, was set/played far and away too loud for joyful listening to the vocals of a singer. It was so bad, I really couldnt wait for the show to end. Anita did sing a few songs past the end of show, maybe to atone for the late start. A lovely voice that couldnt be enjoyed due to the sound crew

I was really looking forward to the show. I arrived 45 mins. early, and the show finally started an hour and 15 mins. late. From the moment she came on stage, she barked complaints to the live nation folks. (She needed a better mic stand, she needed an acoustic piano, the volume levels weren't right etc.) She opened with a Patti Labelle song, why I don't know. She never apologized for being late. It really seemed to the audience she was unprepared and had done no walk throughs in preparation for the show. My wife and I were very disappointed and left an hour into the show. As we left the coliseum, we noticed many others leaving as well. Ive never walked out of a concert before, but we just couldn't take any more.Won't go to see here again.

First...I love her music. But...her concert was awful. Just like what I've read from others, she complained all night and appeared totally unprepared. I'll still listen to her music but I'll never go to another one of her concerts...

I traveled far and spent over $600 for my ticket and walked out early. No sound check! No professional… Looked like not much rehearsal. She is a beautiful singer.., but the show was lousy… Never Again…so disappointed and sad. Don’t waste your time or pay to see a less than mediocre show. Anita needs to stop ….

2.0 star rating James from Atlantic City, New Jersey


Very disappointed in the concert. A great signer who no longer has it and should not be on tour. Could not remember words to song. Asked for tele-promoter throughout the concert. The venue played her songs for about an hour before she came out.

Nov 24 2023 Hard Rock casino Atlantic City, Show started 1 hr late I wish ms Baker would have sat down in a stool and sang her ballads so we could have really enjoyed her beautiful voice
